The climate of Hamadan (Iran)
Hamadan is located in the northwestern part of Iran in the Hamadan province of which it also is the capital. Hamadan is located east from the Zagros mountain range at an altitude of about 1,800 meters. Hamadan is an old city with a history that dates back to 3,000 BC. In earlier times the city was known as Ecbatana which was the capital of the Median empire. During its history the city was destroyed several times and several battles took place here. The city has always been known for its ceramic and handcrafted carpets. The tomb of Gonbade Alavian is very beautiful both from the inside and the outside. The tomb of the writer Baba Tahir and the tombs of Esther and Mordechai are also well worth visiting. Hamadan has a steppe climate with large differences in temperatures between day and night and between summer and winter. Summers are very pleasant for a city located at this altitude with daytime temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit). Winters may be extremely cold with temperatures below freezing point on average. In extreme cases temperatures may drop as low as -30 degrees Celsius (-22.0 degrees Fahrenheit). Most precipitation falls during the winter and occasionally falls in the form of snow.
