History and culture of Imam Khomeini Square in Hamedan

Central Square in Hamedan is one of the oldest and biggest squares in Iran. Since this square intersects with six main Streets of the city, you can access the whole city from this point. This square was added to the National Heritage List on July 12, 2000, with registration number 2712, under the title of radial cities with concentric circles which is unique in terms of urban planning in the whole country.

The square is of 80 meters dimension and all six streets are 30 meters wide at an angle of 60 degrees to each other. Simple geometric patterned brickwork, window sills with human and animal motifs, and wooden windows are some of the stunning artworks around the square. The architecture and design of this square are very similar to the architecture of European squares in the Renaissance.
