International and historical collection of Takht-e-Suleiman is located in West Azerbaijan province, 45 kilometers northeast of Takab with an area of 12.5 hectares and is noted as one of the historical sites of Iran. Takht-e-Suleiman which was once known as Shiz, is the same famous city which is the birthplace of Zoroaster according to the ancient writings. In terms of human settlements, the antiquity of Takht-e- Suleiman dates back to three thousand years ago. It is one of the most important monuments of the country registered as the fourth of Iran's monument in the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
Now in Takht-e- Suleiman monuments from the early Sassanid to the Mongol periods are identified, but since the date of this site goes back to the Achaemenid and Parthian dynasties, undoubtedly in case the excavations are continued, important works related to pre-Sassanid period would be discovered. The spring of Takht-e-Suleiman began to boil thousands of years ago and gradually glaze effects of the compounds in water, and sediments covered the outer edges. This trend continued for thousands of years and caused the water to create a vase shape in its surrounding.
