With respect to several initial visits from Vigol and Haraskan historical district conducted by the author in 2006 and in accordance with abundant available data from historical and Islamic era and thanks to the importance of the district, a systematic investigation carried out into this district in autumn 2007 through a research planning. In this plan, a 120-acres area, consisting of two cities with two castles located at the center of which, was identified and thereafter named as western and eastern cities. Despite the fact that in several texts these cities are referred to as Vigol and Haraskan, the author argues that this historical district could reasonably be the remains of these two cities which has been formed from the Sasanian era and remained and survived until the Islamic era and accordingly abandoned at the beginning of Ilkhanate era. Accordingly, the first phase of discovery was made in the district in 2010 which led to obtaining important data affirming and highlighting the importance of this district and region of Kashan. A religious architectural monument from Sasanian era was the most importance achievement obtained as a result of the first phase of discovery in this district which will be introduced and concerned in this paper.
