Let us take you on a journey back in time to a mixture of ancient sites and samples of Islamic arts and architecture, spiced with the rich culture of Iranian hospitality.
We start the tour at Marashi Historical house, built during Qajarid era, has a wonderful view towards the watermills, the centre of Shushtar Historical Hydraulic System. We will then get closer to the Watermills complex where we will see the ancient masterpiece of Iranian hydraulic engineers. An ancient dam, tunnels and canals built for regulating the river water and powering watermills. Next stop is Mizan dam, part of the historical hydraulic system, which was build during the Sassanid era for splitting Karun river’s water between Shatit and Gargar canals. Remains of a tower can be seen near this dam. Known as Kolah Farangi, it’s believed to be a monitoring tower for construction and operation of Mizan dam. We will then visit Mostowfi Historical House, another Qajarid monument where we can have lunch as well. After some rest, we will head for Salasel Fortress, remains of the city’s fortification and command centre for the hydraulic system. Darioun Canal starts right underneath of this fortress which lies on a small plateau overlooking Karun river. We also visit remains of Caesar’s Dam, spanning 500m. over Karun river, the most eastern Roman bridge/dam built by captive Roman soldiers under the order of Sassanid king Shapur I. Our next stop will be at Shushtar Jameh mosuqe, 1200 years old, one the oldest mosques in Iran. Our program ends at Shushtar Traditional Bazzaar, dating back to Qajarid era, a great place for trying local street food..
