Geographically Qazvin Province is located in the central part of Iran with an area of 15821 km² between 48-45 to 50-50 east of Greenwich Meridian of longitude and 35-37 to 36-45 north latitude of the equator. This province is bounded on the north by Mazandaran and Guilan, on the west by Hamedan and Zanjan, on the south by Markazi and on the east by Tehran provinces. As the Mountain Chain of Central Alborz and Rämand& Kharaghän Mountains have surrounded the province in three directions, a wide plain has emerged which from north to south and from east to west is 75km and 95km in extent respectively. The north and southwest heights of the province are more than 4000m and 2700m of altitude respectively. The famous mountains of the province are those of Siälän, Shäh Alborz, Khashchäl, Sephidkouh, Shojä e din, Alehtareh, Rämand, Ägh dägh,Kharaghän, Saridagh, Soltan pïr, Siähkouh etc. in which Siälän with a height of 4175m and Shäh Alborz which is 4056m high are much more higher than other ones. The central and east parts of the province which constitute the plain of Qazvin, include a slope stretched from northwest to southeast that is in the lowest point of 1130m. The lowest point of the province is in Tärom e Soflä and Sephid Rood dam lake banks which has created an apparent topographical difference.
