Sisakht could be traced back in history, legends, and braveries. There is a saying that once one of the Iranian legendary kings named Keikhosro was passing this area with the accompany of thirty great strong men of his kingdom. On their way, they came across a steeped neck of a mountain across which passing was an absolute difficulty. The king decided to return, realizing that they could not pass this part of the path, but the adjutants refused to do that. As the troupers realized that their king had left them at dawn, they opted to follow him but at long last they couldn’t make it because of the snow and freezing weather. This area is named Sisakht (endurance of thirty) after these troupers’ bravery and loyalty. There are certain traditions specific to the people who are living in this city. They usually don’t lock the door of their cars or their houses. There is a symbolic sculpture in the middle of the city which represents a farmer who is standing while there is a book in one of his hands and there are crops on the other hand.
