    Favorite thing: Shahrud Museum

    Dating from the later Qajar and early Pahlavi periods, originally belonging to the Shahrud Municipality and already located in the center of the town, this two- storied structure with brick facing was transformed into the present museum in 1988 after a series of major repair and renovation works. It is a remarkable structure in terms of architectural style and exterior tile works. It houses both archaeological and ethnological sections.

    Favorite thing: Masjid-e Farumad

    Located in a village by the same name 165 km to the north east of Shahrud, the original construction of this magnificent historic monument belongs to the 13th century AD.
    Today nothing but the ruins and demolished columns and prayer hall of that impressive structure may catch the visitor's eyes. The reason for the building of such a mosque in this village was that Farumad and the surrounding villages had developed into a major center of political
    activities of Sarbedaran Movement during the later Ilkhanid period.
