Tehran, Apr 18 (Prensa Latina) Iranian archaeologists have reportedly discovered the remains of an ancient underground city, close to the town of Samen, Hamadan province, some 400 kms from the capital, Tehran.
The excavation unearthed underground tunnels connecting at least 25 rooms where archaeologists found the remains of 60 people in nine rooms, and are still excavating in the rest of the site.
Ali Khaksar, head of Iran's Organization of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism in Hamadan province, told local Khabar News Agency that the underground settlement is believed to be around 2,000 years old.
The amazing discovery is one of several exciting findings by Iranian archaeologists in recent months. In March, they found underground living quarters carved into a mountain in central Iran dating back to the 12th century.
In February, an excavation in southern Iran led to the discovery of an ancient observatory which is believed to date back to the reign of the Sassanian dynasty from 224 to 651 AD.
