Details of itinerary & map
- The Stone Lion. It is said that this tremendous stone statue of a lion is the handiwork of Alexander's craftsmen, built probably in commemoration of one of the Macedonia's fallen generals, Haephestion.
- Mausoleum of Avicenna. The world-famous scientist Avicenna lived in Hamadan for several years and died here in 1307. A large mausoleum, built over his tomb in 1952, together with a library and a small museum devoted to his works are visited by many local and foreign tourists.
- Mausoleum of Baba Taher is the 20th century rocket-like monument. Baba Taher was a mystic poet, who died in 1019.
- The Shrine of Esther and Mordecai. Mausoleum of Esther and Mordecai is traditionally believed to be the place where Esther, the Jewish Queen of Susa and Xerxes' wife, and Mordecai, her uncle, were buried. It is considered as the most important Jewish pilgrimage site in Iran.
- The Holy Shrines. The people of Hamadan have always paid respectful attention to holy shrines. There are several mosques, mausoleums and shrines in Hamadan including Imamzadeh Farzandi-All, Imamzadeh Esmaell, lmamzadeh Abdullah, the Jami' Mosque and Khaneghah.
- Ganj Nameh (A Historical Relief). Hamadan's oldest Achaemenian rock carvings consist of two huge inscribed panels set in the rock face. The site is known as Ganj Nameh (Treasure Book), because for a long time it was believed that the inscriptions contained a clue to the whereabouts of fabulous treasures accumulated by the Medes and Achaemenians.
- Gonbad-e Alavian. This is the most important Islamic monument in Hamadan. It is a square building of late SeIjuk period with a masterly stucco interior. This building has a crypt containing the tombs of two members of the Alavid family. The monument's facade is one of the most elaborately decorated facades of the country.
- Borj-e Qorban (Qorban Dome) is a 12-sided plain brick building with a pyramid shaped dome. The tombstone inside the dome is from the Safavid period, but the building itself cannot be attributed to periods later than the 13th century.
