Urmia (also called orumiyeh ارومیه in Persian) is a city in the northwest of Iran, near the border with Turkey. It is the capital of West Azerbaijan Province and the largest city in the region. The city is one of the oldest cities in Iran, dating back to the 9th century BC. It was an important center of trade, religion, and politics in ancient times. Some believe that it was the birthplace of Zoroaster, the founder of Zoroastrianism, one of the oldest monotheistic religions in the world.
