My 19 Day Iranian Azerbaijan circuit - From the Caspian rives to Tabriz and Takth-e Soleiman - Day 14 (afternoon) - Marâgheh - The Verjuy Mithra temple cave ensemble - The 22nd of May 2017

We drove to Marâgheh and prior to checking in at the hotel visited a Mithraic temple cave located close to the local cemetry, where rituals are believed to have taken place and which was then being visited by quite a number of locals. Some of the inscriptions were worth being looked at, as well as the whole ensemble.

As I walked out of the caves ensemble I sighted some children and decided to get closer in order to talk to them and the family members they were with. I ended up having quite an interesting gesture-oriented conversation with the children's mothers, who seemed overly excited to get to know a foreigner who showed some interest in them.
