History and culture of Takestan old tomb

 Evidence suggests that the building belongs to the Seljuk period and is very old. Although some consider it a pre-Islamic fire temple, brickwork, especially the brickwork at the entrances and entrances around it, which belongs to the Seljuk period, seems unlikely to be so.

Architecture of Takestan old tomb

A brick-shaped tower with a rectangular shape measuring 65.6 by 45.6 meters forms four arches. Of all the many ancient decorations used in this building, two ridges of small decorative three-aisled arches, which have a special beauty with the help of brickwork and patterned drawings, have remained. At the height of its simplicity, Pir Takestan's mausoleum has a solid architectural style and is used by Seljuk architects. These artists are well visible in the entrance view as well as in the interior of the octagonal dome under the dome. In this section, pictures in the form of a broken cross and small pieces of bedding are shown. Due to the fact that the main map of the building was obtained from this place during the excavation and the type of architecture and materials used in it, this building can be considered to belong to the Seljuk period

 It is interesting to know that inside the tomb there is no tombstone or box from someone's burial. According to the excavations carried out by historians around 1355 solar year, the fact has been confirmed that as a result of these excavations around the tomb, in the right corner of the courtyard in front of the building, the bones of three tall bodies, the feet of all three, Two large daggers and a glass containing blue liquid have been discovered.
