Kazem Dashi is more than just a historic rock

June 13, 2018

Kazem Dashi, also known as Qala Dashi, is a large rock in the northwest of Lake Urmia in Gurchin Qaleh village.

 At different times in history, including during the World War I, the site provided a safe haven for the surrounding villagers. The rock is named in the memory of Kazem Khan, commander of the village guards, who himself was from Gurchin Qaleh.
