  • Kermanshah



The city of Kermanshah located in the centre of the province was developed in the 4th century AD under the patronage of the Sassanian kings. The city squats astride the former Royal Road to Baghdad and such strategic positioning has brought both prosperity and attack, suffering brutal damage during the Iran–Iraq War.

Vast, sprawling and often bewildering, the centre, feels strangely empty of people, yet traffic snarls along its main arteries.

The city's proximity to the Achaemenid and Sassanid carvings of Bisotun and Taq-e Bustanis makes Kermanshah truly one of the great ancient cities of Iran.
