Full of history but not well preserved. Doesn't worth allocating especial time on it unless you have excess time or its en route to other places

Although this lion is ancient and remained from Iranian's ancient times,but this is placed in the middle of a square and nothing else,you can see it in 5minutes!!! It should have been in a museum together with other ancient sculptures to be more attractive

This tomb is in one of the main square of the city. It belongs to the Alexander,The great, and he has made it for one of his friends! Study about it and then visit this statue! The story behind it is extremely attractive.

This stone-made statue is not so special compared to other historical attractions of Hamadan city. It dates back to Alexander the Great era and was built to honor one of his commanders who was killed in a battle conquering the city of Hegmataneh.
