The city of Tabriz situated 619 km, northwest of Tehran, is 150 kilometres from the borders of Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan.
Biblical clues place Tabriz at the gates of paradise and the Ajichay River flowing out of the Garden of Eden. Mentioned in an inscription relating to Sangar II, one of the Assyrian rulers 714 BC, the name of Tabriz has been written about in the 3rd and 4th centuries AD when the city of Tabriz was of great importance.
