Most inhabitants of the now abandoned village, Garmanav, were Izadis, followers of an ancient cult with beliefs akin to sun worshiping. They used to slaughter sacrificial animals in a site located at the slopes of this hill. Nobody bothered to ask the reasons behind the holiness of the site. However, the pleasures of an occasional feast was so tempting that the followers of the Shia' sect attended the holy site, too. Nowadays there is no worshipers and the centuries long tradition, along with liberal minded Izadi culture, will be soon forgotten.
