Fereydoon Allahyari, the general director of Isfahan's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization announced the discovery of an ancient skeleton in Talkhuncheh City in Mobarakeh County, which probably dates back to the Sassanid era.

Iran (IMNA) – "Following the runoff trickling from one of the agricultural irrigation sub canal system in Talkhuncheh County in Mobarakeh, a historical tomb was discovered," Fereydoon Allahyari said.

"Archeologists concluded that this tomb which probably dates back to the Sassanid era, belongs to a man who had been living  in Central plateau of Iran, and was buried in this place after his death," he added. "Several clay jars were found beside the dead body; archeologists are now investigating them," he continued.

In 2006, some ancient caves were discovered in Qaleh Bozi Mountains situated in Dizicheh region in the central district of Mobarakeh County, which indicate that the life history of living in cave dwellings in this area dates back to 43 thousand years ago.
