Frankly you shouldnt expect this place like persepolis or acropolis because there is nothing left actually, at the front door mentioned 2 churches but you are allowed to visit one of them. It seems the other one using for official purpose ( im not sure)

if you have a great imagination and like looking at foundations then this is the place for you. Still being excavated and lovely mountains surround the site. Hardly anyone visits here but worth a 30 minute visit if you are in Hamadan.

Actually the covered portion of the Hamadan's ancient Achaemenid city is well done where on can walk along the ruins. The Armenian church beyond the nice museum in worth a stop, also. The museum has some very impressive pieces.
