Its first cut possibly dates back to the Partian era. Most Mitra temples like the Niasar cave have been built in full darkness.
The cave also has other entrances, some of which open in a rocky area that separates the upper parts of Niasar from the lower neighborhoods.
These entrances, which face the north along with the Niasar Waterfall, have created a beauti-ful scenery. Signs of water erosion on the rocks bear testimony to the fact that the cave had been a scenic area since times imme-morial.
At the base of the waterfall, there are two millstones while similar millstones can also be seen inside the cave. The existence of these stones inside a dark cave had not been for milling wheat, but had been used for turning wheels during ceremonies related to Mithraism rites. According to Sheikhli, who has visited many caves of Iran, these stones were used to close the entrances to the small chambers of the cave.
Air circulates well throughout the cave.
