Eynali Mount | The largest mountain resort in Iran
Eynali is a mountain range in north of Tabriz, the capital of East Azerbaijan. From its peaks we can mention Eynali (1800 m), Bahlul (1985 m), Pakeh-chin (1945 m), Halileh (1850 m) and the highest one Dand (2378 m).
Reason of the naming
Eynali Mount is called Eylani-Zeinali in the local language. The tomb of two sons of Imam Ali (the first Imam of Shia), are located on top of the mountain, whose names are Oun Ibn Ali and Zeyd Ibn Ali ; or Imam zade Eynali and Zeinali. Although there is a belief among some people that this building was a Zoroastrian temple in the past and its name changed during the Muslim’s invasion, in order to be safe.
Daq Goli is an artificial lake which is located on the west side of Eynali Mountain. The eye-catching and beautiful view of the lake will amaze every visitor.
Eynali Mountain is a favorite place for hiking and mountaineering among tourists and local people.
