Bishapur, Kazerun

(70 reviews on the web)
Ruin
Visit Bishapur and walk among the remains of an ancient Iranian city. The ruler Shapur I founded the city in 266 CE because he wanted a new capital. Visit the fire temple, a shrine dedicated to Persian goddess Anahita. Take a stroll in what was once a courtyard, decorated with mosaics. You'll see many decorative reliefs that represent either the rulers or their battles and victories. One of the most striking reliefs is the one in the river canyon, enormous in size, depicting a military victory. By using our Kazerun trip itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Bishapur and other attractions in Kazerun.

  • Nice site divided into two parts: the old city and the reliefs must see! Between the visit of the two sites we had a picnic on the banks of the River, near the mosque. We found many Iranian families, eat, walk, play and wash rugs in the river. We were invited to taste the sweets, and drinking tea with them. Beautiful experience!
