Where is SEMANAN?

SEMNAN JAMEH MOSQUE
JAMEH Mosque
SEMNAN
SEMNAN lies 3,734 ft (1,138 m) above sea level on a large plain at the southern foot of the Alborz Mountains. In the town there is an ornamented minaret (12th century) and several large places of worship. SEMNAN is a thriving marketplace for local grains, cotton, and tobacco; textiles and carpets are also made there. The town is linked by rail with TEHRAN and MASHAD. SEMNAN was cited by Oriental geographers for the rivulets running through its streets; its soft cotton textiles and its sweet paste made from almonds and figs were also noted.

Three to four hours by motorcar on an asphalt road will get you from TEHRAN to SEMNAN. SEMNAN has three cities: :


Old Gate of SEMNAN
JAMEH Mosque
SEMNAN
It is bounded on the west by RAY (now the south part of TEHRAN) and TEHRAN, on the east by Damghan, on the north by GORGAN and SARI cities and on the south by the central desert (KAVIR). It is said that SEMNAN was one of the main provinces of ancient IRAN, and its inhabitants now speak in what seems to be an ancient Persian dialect. The Seljukian Minaret with an epitaph in Koofi script and the Friday Mosque beside the Minaret are significant monuments in SEMNAN.
