Mount Damavand, the highest peak of homeland, which is located near capital, is an important location in Ferdowsi’s Šāhnāme, a persian epic poem based on the ancient legends of homeland. It appears in the epics as the homeland of the protoplast Keyumars, the birthplace of King Manuchehr, the place where King Fereydun bound the dragon fiend Aždahāk (Bivarasp), and the place where Arash shot his arrow.
