Sheikh Abdullah was one of the Shia scholars in the late and early eighth centuries of the AH. According to the past, he was one of the Sarbadars chiefs who were wanted during the Mogul period, came to this area and passed away here. His grave was seen by Mirza Habib Khorasani.
The Gabr castle, also known as the "Castle of Hesar", is the name of a castle which is the end of a small river with works of prehistoric civilization.
The Sang Sefid (White stone) castle is in front of the Hesar castle, whose inhabitants according to the old Kang residents, were at war with the inhabitants of the Hesar castle. The remains of this castle are still available.
The Gabr bath is located in a small river and underneath the Gabr castle. There are two rocky pits in the river; first, the water enters the first pit, after filling the first pit gets out of its corner and enters the second pit. And after filling the pit, the water leaves it. because the pit height is higher than the surface of the river, a beautiful cascade is created. This place is called the Gabr bath, because if someone enters one of these water pits, is not visible from the outside.
The Ribat of Kang, a Shah Abbasi Ribat, is located at the end of the Kang Valley and on a slope overlooking the great river of Kang. This Ribat could be accessed through two paths, one from the valley side and one from the mountain side. The distance between Ribat and Kang village is about an hour and a half on foot. Shah Abbasi Ribat is mountainous and without a courtyard. It is excavated below the ground and its roof is almost equal to the slope of the mountain range. According to the people in village, the old way of Neishabur to Mashhad crossed this Ribat and Jaghargh Ribat.
The Robero spring (the holy springs) stands at the end of the village and in Bazr-Khoo area. people consider it sacred. The people of Kang believe in this spring alot.
The Kang River originates from Binaloud Mountains. There are two branches above the river; one the small river of Nervey; the other is a large river, which join under the village, and irrigates the gardens of the village towards the Noghondar. On both sides of the river there are large fruit gardens. The Kang river is full of water in all seasons and has a very cool and delicious water. Along the river, many springs come together. Except the river stretches across the valleys of the Kang area, beautiful gardens, clear springs, and clear aqueducts coming out of the mountain could be seen, which is a great place for the tranquility and comfort of the passersby. The surrounding mountains show off as sunshades around the gardens.
