The mysterious white cemetery or graveyard White Well is one of the strangest Iranian cemeteries belonging to the Timurid period.

It is highly interesting as the first Iranian Muslim cemetery in the northern region of Iran. The villagers' belief that the white soil of the cemetery led to not corrode the bodies and forgive all their sins is the reason of people inclination to bury their relatives here.

Other features of this cemetery are the vertical position of the gray stones engraved with strange and interesting illustrations.

Some symbolic designs engraved to show the profession of those buried, tools, and job work and to find out the gender on stones that are causes of cemetery reputation globally.
