Jondi Shapour Archaeological City – Dezful

Jondi Shapour Archaeological City – Dezful

The ancient city of Jondi Shapour lies at a distance of 10 km. from Dezful, at the vicinity of Shah Abad village.

There is a strong possibility that Shahpour I was responsible for the construction of this city after his victory over Valerian. His descendant (7th generation) known as ‘Shapour Zol Akhtaf’, developed and expanded the city to a large one. Its university in its own time was of great repute throughout the world, and even in the last decades has been considered to be a great scientific center.
