Silk Road: Meghri – Pokr Tagh

Back to home

Pokr Tagh was developed after the main district of town but has the oldest extant structures, a virtual folk museum of architecture and old traditions. Its buildings are traced to the resettlement of the neighborhood following the 1639 Treaty of Qasr-e Shirin (also called the Treaty of Zuhab).
