Quoted from the book from Astara to Astarabad, Dr. Manouchehr Sotoudeh
Etemad Al-Saltanah wrote the following about the cut in 1292 AH:
We went through bad places again. We reached a point that was the hardest of all. They made it fairly well. The old Larijan road was on the right. There was no way at all. The mountain was a piece of rock and smooth. From the middle of the foot of this mountain, a platform has been closed with lime and stone, but the base of the platform has not reached the ground.. It is suspended between earth and sky. From these platforms, which were not more than one square in width, it was formerly the passage of convicts and hesitants of Mazandaran.. Jala is made so that the carriage passes. In this strait, he has carved the statue of Mubarak Shah on a stone, riding in formal clothes. Hassan Ali Khan Weir also benefits from standing on foot.(Etemad-ol-Saltaneh Memoirs Book, page 52)Quoted from the book from Astara to Astarabad, Volume 3, Page 451

Top row:Quoted from the book from Astara to Astarabad, Volume III
In the time of Nasreddin Shah Kamkar / The goat of justice sought the right path and found it
His command is straightforward in every way
Thank God that he chose such an empire for his own approval
The kings of Dehr are immortal for property / King Wayne poured out for the name
Everything raw was cooked in the end / Shine from the baked gold basket and raw wire
In the way of Larjan, which was the enemy, the work of John / Sometimes passing the caravan of complete neglect
The right row of stones:
Unsurprisingly, sometimes the passage of a giant / The first hymn is Bismillah, then he took a step
They did not bite the snake's share / And Andro Kenam, the lioness of Shirza Najst
Bottom horizontal row:
The way you wanted to be cut / You said no one should go to the trap
In Shahnameh, Zali is a legend / The legend that Abreh made in him Pour Sam
With the comfort of Mazandaran land / The ruling of Sari is the emperor of this position
It was opened because the floor of Karim belonged to Malik / The road that was closed was like Latham's forehead
Carved stone by Khosrow Farhadsan / He made an image of Shah Parviz Ehtesham
The headless estuary of the mountain erupted / Because the crown of Shahriar arose from Raham
They asked for the date of the emperor / Because it was a special service to praise the slave

Aam Banash Khameh Rezvan wrote and read
A stone and mortar bridge was cut near the end of the gorge:
Near the northern mouth of the tunnel, which has been cut on the right side of the gorge, is an iron bridge that can be crossed to reach the left hand side of Haraz water.. About one kilometer, when we went south on the left road of Ab Haraz, we reached a broken bridge. Its right base and some of its arch crescent remain to this day. The old road, which apparently belongs to the Sassanid period, came from the right side of Haraz water by crossing this bridge to the left of the water.. Some old road, on the right side of the water that leads to this bridge, can be seen on top of a wall of stone and plaster..From Astara to Astarabad, Volume 3, Page 451
The way to get in shape شاه:
Reaching path from the side Tehran is such that after crossing Goznak, Shahandasht and Amiri, it enters the Wana tunnel. Receipt. Before the tunnel on the left is the path of a parking lot to go. after The car park is about a quarter walk up to the relief. The road is almost smooth and light Is. To go to the ancient Sassanid bridge, you have to continue the route for another quarter to It came close. The route at this price is steep and should be along the route at that height Takes a lot of valley very careful.
