Shahin Shahr was Iran’s first master-planned satellite city, located approximately 15 miles (24 km) to the north of Isfahan, Iran’s second largest metropolitan area and its historic capital.
Shahin has been incorrectly translated into “falcon”, “eagle”, and other birds of prey; however, Shahin (“Hawk”) Shahr (“City”) comes about given the historical and prevalent nesting of the said birds-of-prey in that area.
