it was one of the defensive fortresses of the central government of Madad, built to defend Western borders against the influx of powerful Mesopotamian peoples, including the Assyrian state.

Ancient Median town
Oct 2018
The walls of this ancient Median town are almost 8 m. high and because of his location on a hill rising about 4O m. above the plain Te Nush-e Jan is easy to see from the Hamadan- Malayen road.

Beautiful old place in the middle of desert

This ancient place is in the middle of the way from Hamedan to Malayer. it is a very old nice place and it is not crowded because it is far from capital. it really does worth it to go this far way.

A fascinating and unique excavated ruin from the Median period
Sep 2016 • Solo
We were expertly guided on this tour of Nush-e-Jan. This was truly an awe inspiring ruin and had us all gobsmacked. I covered every inch of it that was accessible except the tunnel that was very dark indeed. It was a mud brick fort/temple/palace that has been excavated by the French on top of a huge mound in the middle of a flat plain 60 kilometres south of Hamadan. It was a real privilege to get into this site in the first place and then climb to the top and explore every part of its complicated set up. It belonged to the Medes. It had a fire altar and they found a treasure trove of gold and silver. It was discovered and excavated in 1967-1974. It has heavy walls and large store rooms, several palace-like rooms, a hall with 12 columns, a water tunnel that started in the hall and a cross shaped building interpreted as a fire sanctuary. The building is carbon dated 723 to 220 BC. The climb to the top of the hill or Tepe was long and arduous although assisted by a long iron stairway. Once at the top the site reminded me of Mari in Syria which was from a similar period.

not intresting at all
Jun 2016 • Family
located on a hill in left side of the road from Malayer to Hamedan , I had seen many times the hills and in respect to its big sign near the road I was interested to visit the hills. hopefully you can drive close to the location . really I was disappointed when we reached on top of the hill , there was a renovated building which has been covered with a shelter , entrance door to the main saloon was locked and we visited around the building . it seems most of the building had been ruined and the main part of it has been renovated . really I had no feeling to be in a historical area . later as I checked I found the building was a fire temple which returns to the Sasanid density or before of Sasanids.
recommendation : if you are interested in Noushijan visit it only in the books and internet .
