Damaneh; Iran's two-story county

Being located in the west of Isfahan province and in the center of Fereydan, Damaneh county dates back to the Achaemenid era; however, it has being moved several times due to the civil wars so that it is also called a mobile city.

Iran (IMNA) - Initially, the county was formed in Qahiz plain, and now it lies next to the holy shrines of Abdullah and Ibrahim, which are about two kilometers away from the current location of the county.

The present Damaneh, being hit in different times, was formed in the late Safavid and early Qajar periods.

Taking the various wars and expeditions into account, Damaneh has been relocated three times since its formation and the current setting of the county dates back to 500 years ago.

Considering the discovery of a large subterranean city in Damaneh, this county can be henceforth called Iran's two-story county.

There are about 100 to 150 underground houses there, and so far 25 of them have been discovered, one of which has been unearthed for public visit. Some of these earth-sheltered houses are connected to each other and a couple of them have been built in two floors.

The underground county of Damaneh has rarely been subjected to change, so it can be considered as one of the best historical places to jump in time.
