  • The miracal hydralic system built by Sasanian king Shapur the first . A must visit. Maintenance is necessary.

The place is so glorious. You can see buildings, historical houses surrounding that place. It's like a place with many artificial waterfalls. Enjoy it and relax.
  • Beautiful but need more tourist facilities
  • ancient Persian complex. such an amazing complex!
