Historical Background

Khoosf is considered to be one of the most ancient regions of the province from a historical point of view. The poems of Hakim Nezari and Kaal-Jangaal inscriptions, Lakh Mazar petroglyph, and Pahlavi inscriptions in a valley called “Master Tangal” are all indicative of the fact that the region is several thousand years old. Meanwhile, the discovery of petroglyphs validates that the main pathway of Khorasan and Ghohestan toward Kerman and southern Iran passed through the valleys of southeastern Birjand, particularly the “Master Valley.” The Baghran Mountain and the villages Noferest, Kouch, Kahin, and Chenesht were located on the verge of this desert.
