The Tarkhanabad Mound is located in a fertile valley in the Zagros Mountains.  The excavations were conducted due to illegal construction activities within the Mound’s boundaries. The tombs are said to contain human bones, a skull, remains of brick and stone architecture, along with pottery bearing parallel scriptures belonging to the Islamic periods.
