Where is SARAB?

Northwestern IRAN - SERAB (SARAB)

Sarab (Serab) is a small town 636 kilometers away from Tehran, and 130 kilometers away from Tabriz in Northwestern Iran .

The district of Sarab is situated between the high mountains of Bozquosh and the peak of Sabalan, and it has mild temperatures during the summertime while it is very cold during the winter.

The town of Sarab is one of the oldest and historic settlements of Azerbaijan, Iran. An epigraph is found near the town which belongs to the Oratoey period.

The volcanic mountains which are situated around the town provide the area with many mineral water springs. It's located in the path of many tribal peoples such as the Shasavan.

The rugs of Sarab, which are also known as Serapi, have light, rather bright color schemes.

The usual adjective for "ofrom Sarab"o would be "oSarabi"o, this changed to "oSerapi"o. In 1876, about the time that Sarabi rugs were coming on the market in England, the Prince of Wales made a trip to India on the H.M.S. Serapis. The similarity of the names led to the form "Serapi" for the rugs.
