Noshijan hill is on a side road about 20 km northwest of Malayer. If you are going from Malayer to Hamedan, after 15 km, on the left side of the side road, which also has a signboard, it will take you to Noushijan.. We did the routing with the map and finally, in front of the door of the yard, the guard gave us permission to enter.. He opened the door and showed the view and we left. The guard is a long way from the top of the hill. You can go to the top of the hill by car, and then the built-in stairs will take us to the walls of this interesting place.. It is built on a hill and has its own architectural elements.
