Aria Heritage / This news was written about a village with beautiful nature and historical structures, which is located 48 km from Zanjan.
The architecture of the village has been created in a stepped manner on the slopes of the mountain and has given it a special glory. In addition to natural attractions, this village can see many historical monuments there. The men of the village are mostly bakers, and the women of the village also make pottery, especially the women of Glabar village, who have become breadwinners at home and in the village, relying on their art. The pottery ovens and pottery produced in this village are reminiscent of local baked bread and dairy products that are well-known in the heart of the region for those who are familiar with it.
Half-height ovens for baking bread are made by women who are middle-aged these days. These days, kilns take pottery to traditional garden houses or bakeries, sometimes to the middle of Tehran. Most of this fame is due to the use of quality soil and goat hair in the construction of this oven. Traditional bakeries, gardens and courtyards are the destination of these small and large ovens.
According to the excavations carried out in this place, the oldest artifacts obtained from it are related to the Parthian period, but most of its artifacts are related to the middle period of Islam, especially the Seljuk era. Existence of various historical monuments along with the pristine and beautiful nature of this region, has made this village a tourist destination.

This is a stepped village with forty Sassanid steps, Glabar Mosque , Glabar Dam, Garden Gardens and alleys is a good destination for tourism. The rock known as Qirkh Ayagh was also located in the south of Glaber village.
Glaber Dam in this area is a unique attraction that the presence of rocks and high walls around it has given it a unique view. In Glaber Dam, conditions were provided for water sports, rock climbing and fishing. The distance from Abadi to Zanjan is about 48 km. This dam is the largest dam in Ijroud city and currently in Zanjan province and is of great economic and agricultural importance for this region.
On the western slope of these heights, the historical mound of Glaber Mosque is located. The complex consists of a mosque and a monastery, which is likely to be a tomb. The mosque has a relatively small square plan that is made of travertine around a height of 1.5 meters and the names of the Imams (AS) and the name of Hazrat Fatima (AS) are engraved on it along with Islamic motifs. Glabar Mosque has the only stone inscription and altar in the province, which according to the type of lines and motifs of Quranic verses, the Kufic script is related to the Seljuk era. Qorveh Grand Mosque and Sajas Mosque Is also visible.
In the excavation carried out at the site, no trace of the type of roof of the mosque appeared, but by observing the stones around the building and the existing evidence and comparing it with similar buildings, it seems that the initial roof of the mosque was a circular dome. The cohesion of the rocks collapsed and in later periods, the roof was covered with beams. In this area, three hectares of fruit trees have been created and landscaping has been done in an area of eight hectares. Camps have been set up for the use of tourists near the village of Glaber.
