In West Azarbaijan of Iran, Takht-e Soleyman, meaning the Throne of Solomon, is an archaeologically fortified site in a wide mountain valley between Urmia and Hamadan at 45 km from the Takab town. It is the heritage of the Sassanid era listed in the UNESCO World Heirtage site. It is famous for its remains of a Zoroastrian fire temple of the Sassanid period holding one of the three Great Fires or Royal Fires in front of whom the kings degrade themselves before the throne ceremony.
