Shushtar Historical Hydraulic System

Date of Inscription: 2009

Province of Khuzestan

Shushtar is located in the province of Khuzistan. Located on a cliff overlooking the Karûn river, the city took advantage of its situation by developing a clever hydraulic system. In fact, in a region where water is scarce, it was always omnipresent in Shushtar, for the men, to turn the mills and for the agriculture. Shushtar owes everything to water!
