Shushtar, an ancient fortress city, is the capital of Shushtar County, Khuzestan Province. It is, approximately 92 kilometers away from Ahvaz.
The main attraction of any trip to Shushtar has to be the UNESCO listed Shushtar Historical Hydraulic System. With a history dating back to the 5th century BC, this system involved the creation of two diversion canals to supply the town of Shushtar with water to power the historic mills.
The best place to get a panoramic outlook over Shushtar and the desert planes, the roof of Shushtar is a popular sunset spot for a hike just on the outskirts of town.
A beautiful and relaxed traditional hotel just off the main street – the Tabib Traditional Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Shushtar.
Choqa Zanbil’s magnificent, Unesco-listed brick ziggurat is the world’s best surviving example of Elamite architecture.
