This ancient city has been Iran’s capital several times due to its position on the trade route to and from Europe, but its birth is still a bit of a mystery - with some sources claiming the first people to live on this site were Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The earliest buildings now standing date from the 8th Century when the city was repaired after an earthquake. Most people who are familiar with Tabriz will know it as the Persian Rug Capital of the world - it produces the world’s most coveted rugs, traditionally in ivory with blue, pink and purple symmetrical designs.
