For more than 200 years wrestlers have come to the city of Esfarayen in Northern Iran for a wrestling tournament called Bachokheh. This tournament is unique because it is held in the open air.



North Khorasan is a province located in northeastern Iran. Bojnourd is the centre of the province. Other counties are Shirvan, Esfarayen, Maneh and Samlaghan, and Garmeh and Jajarm. North Khorasan is one the three provinces that were created after the division of Khorasan in 2004.
