Postby Parvaneh » Thu Apr 10, 2014 6:45 pm

Introduction:Chehel-Chah Cave(Persian:غار چهل چاه)

National Registration No. 17075, Age: Seljuq Dynasty, Monument Address: Chanshat Village, Sarbishehh Province

On high rocks of the north Chanshat Village and 200m west of Chanshat Cave, there is a cave significant in terms of historical, archeological, and anthropological values. The opening of the cave is located toward South with 80cm high and 1.5m width. Most length of the cave path runs through wandering corridors and it is difficult to pass through them. Along the cave path, there are corpses belonged to adults and children some of whom have become anxious due to the presence of the visitors. On some of the bodies, residues of cloths and also skin and hair are still seen. Regarding the natural conditions of the cave, it was probably used as temporal shelter and most likely the bodies are belonged to an Alawi group protesting against Abbasid government and sheltered the cave. Given the above mentioned, it is suggested that the residues are belonged to 5th century (Hijri).
