History The name Damghan comes from "Deh" and "Moghan". "Deh"

; means village and "Moghan" means Magi. This name was given by Zoroastrians who included such people as King Cyrus and Darius of ancient Persia. http: www.damghannews.com. Historiographers ascribe the construction of Damghan to Hooshang, Keyumars' great grandson and the founder of the legendary '''Pishdadi''' dynasty. The historical town has inherited various names such as Qoomes. Qoomes or Qumis was a province stretching from Sabzevar to Garmsar, from north up

to Alborz Mountain (Alborz) Range and to the Lut Desert in the south. Up to the 1st century AD, Damghan was the capital of that great province. During Alexander of Macedon (Alexander III of Macedon)'s invasion into Iran, the Greeks called it '''Hecatompylos''' ("hundred gates"). The Greeks called every big and important city Hecatompylos and they have recorded a similar big and bustling Egyptian city with that appellation. Of historical treasures in Damghan one must refer

Damghan is situated

Damghan was an important city in the Middle Ages, and was the capital of the province of Qumis (Qoomes), but was destroyed by the Afghan (Afghanistan)s in 1723. Few remnants of that time remain; one is the ruined Tari-khaneh (Tarikhaneh Temple) mosque with a number of massive columns and wood carvings and two minarets of the 11th century. The remains of Hecatompylos lie to the southwest of the city, extending from Forat (Forat, Iran), The Tari-khaneh (c. 9th century), possibly the oldest known mosque in Iran, still stands in the city.

To the southeast of the city there is ruin of a castle from the Sassanids now called Tappeh Hessar, which is thought to be a garrison. After excavation in 1996, archeologists announced that the area ruins indicated three layers from three different eras. The oldest one dates back to 4000 BCE when the Aryans settled in the Iranian plateau.

Despite 7,000 years history, Damghan has been forgotten beneath desert sand dunes, It is one of the most ancient urban metropolis in the Iranian plateau, with many historical monuments including Tappeh Hessar which belongs to the Median (Medes) (728-550 BCE), Parthians (248-224 CE) and Sassanid (224-651 CE) dynastic periods — the Tarikhaneh was built as a fire temple during the Sassanid dynasty and converted into a mosque after the advent of Islam - and many other historical buildings belonging to Seljuks and other periods.
