Javaherdeh, an Iranian jewel village

Javaherdeh Village (the village of Jewel) which is an important tourist attraction in Ramsar county. It is located in a winding green road. It offers beautiful scenery of seemingly endless green fields, snow-capped mountains, vast dense woods, rolling green hills and picturesque north-Iranian farms and villages. The houses in this area of Iran have unlike many other areas of Iran roofs that are tilted rather than flat. Javaherdeh's residents love visitors. They are friendly and sit with you and talk about their village, foods, and etc. The ever-foggy Javaher Deh is a summer resort, with mountains on three sides and a valley on the other. The village, situated at an altitude of 2,000 meters (6,500 feet) above sea level, has a spectacular landscape. The most historically important site in the village, however, is the Adineh Masjed — or the Friday Mosque— which was built with wood and clay about 700 years ago. It had been constructed long before on the remains of an ancient Zoroastrian fire temple. Some of local women sit in front of their houses and bake wonderful bread on the street. It is so tasty especially with homemade cheese and butter! I loved it ^_^



Also, they sell a kind of delicious thick soup containing a lot of mountains vegetables. Then, we headed up the mountain to pick up Borage (a valuable medicinal plant). Tea made from the dried flowers is a traditional calming drink in Iran. It is said to be warm in nature and alleviates symptoms that are caused by using food that is cold in nature. And to respect the beauty of nature, hats off :D
