The Khorbes caves of Qeshm are located 15 kilometers from the city of Qeshm, on the right side of the road from the city of Qeshm to Khorbes village and Ramchah village. In the heights of the village of Khorbes, there are the remains of rock‑cut architectures that, according to the opinion of some scholars, had been a sanctuary of the followers of Mithraism or a temple of Anahita (the god of water).
According to the studies carried out on the archeological site of Khorbes, the antiquity of these remains goes back to the Medians period. The Qeshm Khorbes Caves are located on a mountain cliff overlooking the southern coast of Qeshm Island, with four caves that are interconnected from inside, at an altitude of 20 to 30 meters, which are known as Khorbes Caves. These caves, which are considered old geological phenomena, along with other phenomena and mountains, and the Qeshm Island itself, are the continuation of the Zagros Mountain fold-and-thrust belt, which have been resurfaced from water during the previous millennia.
These caves, from inside, with the presence of complex corridors and halls, and numerous rooms with dimensions of 4×5.5 meters and numerous openings facing north and south, confirm the presence of people in this island since ancient times.
