Tappeh Sialk is a ziggurat of Sialk and is considered the oldest in the world. It was built in 2900 to. C. on three platforms, however, the oldest archaeological remains dating from the mid north mound of VI millennium. C. , that is, around 7,500 years ago. A joint study between the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran, the Louvre and the French Research Institute in Iran also verify that the earliest settlements date back to 5500-6000 Sialk a. C.

Sialk is one of four ziggurats constructed by civilization Elamite . The other three are Choga Zanbil (1250 a. C.), the ziggurat of Susa (1800 a. C.) and Haft Tepe (1375 a. C.), all in Khuzestan . Sialk is the ziggurat n. # 32 and the more recently discovered.

What remains of the ziggurat of five thousand years old is not on favorable terms, like many other ancient ruins in Iran . At the site, there are actually two structures (necropolis) in Sialk located several hundred meters of a of the other. The three largest ziggurat platforms, however, are still in place. There is not much smaller structure. The Louvre has also excavated a cemetery near the structures that has been dated to 7,500 years. What little remains of the two ziggurats crumbling Sialk is now threatened by invasive suburbs of the city of Kashan in expansion. It is not uncommon to see children playing football in the ruins, while only a few meters away is the "forbidden zone" with skeletons than 5,500 years old without digging at the foot of the ziggurat. The location has yet to be registered as a World Heritage Site by Unesco for protection.

It is also considered as the first palace-style building that began life at the plains. Also found parts pottery with wheat inside.

"Teppe Sialk" (in Persian , Tappe means "hill" or "mound") was first excavated by a group of archaeologists led by European Ghirshman Roman in the 1930's . His extensive studies were followed by DE McCown, Y. Majidzadeh, P. Amieh, until the years 1970 and recently reviewed by the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran in 2002 (led by Shah-mirzadi, Ph.D., University of Penn). But like thousands of other Iranian historical ruins, the treasures excavated here eventually ended up going to end up in museums like the Louvre , the British , the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and private collectors.

Sialk, and the entire surrounding region, is thought to have originated for the first time as a result of extensive pristine water sources nearby that still do well today. The Cheshmeh e Soleiman (or "Spring of Solomon") has provided water to this region from the nearby mountains for thousands of years. The Fin garden, built in its present form in the 1600's is a popular tourist attraction today. This is where the Persian kings of the dynasty Safavid would spend their holiday away from their capitals. It is also here where he is buried Piruz (Abu-Lu'lu'ah) , the Iranian murderer second caliph of Islam . All these remains are located in the same location as Sialk.
