  • Amazing buildings and structures, but you should know the weather is very hot 🔥 even in spring. There are no guide signs and explanations and you may need a tour guide. There are carts that sell ice and cold drinks outside. I suggest to bring hats. The boat tour is also suggested.
  • Perhaps the most important tourist attraction of the city, the hystorical hydraulic system shows how ancient Persian engineers used water to power their mills and to distribute it for agricultural use about 15 centuries ago. Magnificent water ducts design that accelerated water to drive the watermills. There's also a boat ride service to enjoy Karoon river and hydraulic system waterfalls.
  • Like any other 'tourist' (they call Iranians from other provinces tourists lol) attractions in Iran, it is imperative to pay a tour guide cum translator with you if you can't speak or understand Farsi. You will not regret it. Don't forget to bring sunscreen and shades to prevent extreme temperature.
  • Beautiful. Historical and engineering place. Very nice. Don't forget to take the motorboat tour
  • You want to see the creation of hydro engineering ? Go visit shoushtar My recom is but to go there after sunset so you get to visit and realise the greatness in this masterpiece ...
