Discover our travel guide of Ahvaz in Iran made of pictures from travel influencers and photographers.
Ahvaz, located in southwestern Iran, is the capital of Khuzestan province. The main source of oil for the country, the city is highly industrialized and has few tourist attractions. Air pollution is one of the highest in the world, which discourages visitors. Thus, Ahvaz is above all a stopover city to reach the west of the country from the Persian Gulf or to discover the ancient Persian remains. The city was once crossed by the royal road linking the city of Susa to Persepolis. Its strategic location, near the Persian Gulf, as well as its oil deposit, makes it a coveted region and earned it many damages during armed conflicts. In addition, the desert climate with temperatures regularly reaching over 50 ° C. Ahvaz is therefore not an attractive tourist center. However, its proximity to the most important Iranian river, the Karun River, offers some advantages. The main attraction of the city is the eight bridges over the river, especially the first and seventh ones, which are of a neat design. Moreover, if you have a few hours to visit the city of Ahvaz, don't hesitate to stroll through the shopping streets, especially Talequani and Salman-e Farsi streets where there seems to be a hidden Arabia. You can also visit the Mapar House, one of the oldest buildings in the city, which houses a small collection. The rest of it disappeared in a fire. Finally, you should know that north of the city, about 2 hours away, there are several Persian archaeological sites. You can visit the Chogha Zanbil, an ancient place of worship built around 1250 BC and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some consider it as one of the first religious monuments in Iran. A second site, Haft Tepeh, is a group of hills where archaeological finds of the Elamite civilization have been made. These collections are kept in the museum of the same name located nearby.
