Taleghan is a beautiful village near Qazvin (Ghazvin) but located in Tehran province. It's around 80 Miles away from city of Tehran, the capital of Iran and among the Alborz Mountains.
Taleghan which is also pronounced in Persian as Talaghan, means mine of gold. Taleghani people are well educated comparing other country and villages in Iran. the most famous people of modern Taleghan are Ayotollah Taleghani, Jalal Al e Ahmad, Omidvar brothers and Colonel Fallahi.

Taleghan is nearly including 100 smaller villages and countries. I have travelled across some of them. there are people in these villages who haven't even travelled to a neighbour village at the ages of 50!! but as I said, most of them are civilized and even well educated.

here are some views from Koolaj village in the heart of Taleghan:
