The city is located near the village of Arzanfud, 25 kilometers southeast of the city of Hamedan, the Hamedan Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Department (HCHTHD) announced on Saturday in a press release.

The city, which is comprised of 25 rooms connected to each other by several corridors, had been dug under a stone mound at a depth of 4 to 6 meters.

There isn't much info on this yet, but I hope soon we will be able to see some pictures. It doesn't sound like much of a city to me since it has only 25 rooms. They think it was used by residents during times of war. (At least some things never change)

i get intrigued with underground dwellings...

in this case a 'city' is hardly the correct term for 25 rooms that are connected.

the present land of Turkey is riddled with much larger underground 'cities' that is open to tourists... the region is named Cappadocia in Turkey

heres a link to what we might expect from the new discovery===

thanks for the heads up

And then we must remember the underground city of Bejieng, created by Mao... supposedly as big as Bejing itself, yet dug underground and handsomely outfitted!

The story about it is absolutely amazing!

Shelter during wars? Hmm that's a lot of work. I don't think so.

Great article thanks for posting!
