About: Ganjnameh of Hamadan

There is an impressive waterfall as well as pleasant nature known as “Hamadan Ganjnameh” in Alvand Mountain near Hamadan. To stone inscriptions, remained from Achaemenid Dynasty, attract attention in the middle of nature next to the waterfall. Each of These two historical inscriptions has been carved in three languages, namely Old Persian, Babylonian, and Elamite languages. The left-side inscription is a bit higher with the name of Darius the Great, and the right-side one is a bit lower with the name of Xerxes carved on it. The inscriptions were decoded and translated in 1941 AD. 
Ganjnameh has a high potential not only in tourism and ecotourism but also in terms of cultural and ancient values. 
Hamadan Ganjnameh Inscriptions were registered in Iran’s National Heritage on January 6, 1932 under the registration number of 22.
