Guide is a necessity to now what has been going on. But only seeing the piles of building boulders makes your imagination work a little also. Not necessary, but worth a stop if you are passing through.

Located in tiny city of Kangavar, the ruined temple makes us imagine how it has been like in 17 centuries ago. Gigantic stones are the only remaining parts of the temple. But you will miss them if you skip visiting

I was wondering whether this site used to be a Zoroastrian temple or a Mithraism temple.
