Hamadan is one of the oldest cities of not only Iran but in the world. Hamadan is one of the cradles of Oriental civilisation with legendary background. The city was founded by king of the Medes in 700 BC. In Ekbatana, the ancient name of Hamadan, there was a majestic palace containing seven castles, which had thousand rooms and equalled that of the Babylon Tower in its grandeur. The city was the residence of Achaemenian Kings, and the summer resort of the Parthian and Sassanian dynasties due to its strategic vicinity to Ctesiphon.
Because of its prominent natural position Hamadan from the times immemorial until recent centuries had been invaded several times. First, the Assyrians destroyed Hamadan. It was ruined again and again during the invasion of the Mongols and Tamerlane. Finally, in the recent centuries the Ottomans attacked the city several times; but Hamadan heroically fought against the enemies and courageously withstood all the losses it had sustained. Hamadan has preserved its importance in the post-Islamic period.
