Firuzabad

 

a village in Iran, in the ostan (region) of Fars, south of the city of Shiraz. During the Sassanid era, Firuzabad was an important cultural and political center. Remains of the ancient city of Gur have been preserved in Firuzabad and its environs. The ancient city was round in plan, and its center was dominated by a square stone tower, where a sacred fire burned. Firuzabad has remains of the stone palace of Ardashir (A.D. 224), a structure of symmetrical layout with three domed halls, an interior courtyard, and an iwan on the facade. Other remains include the stone castle of Kaleye-Dokhtar (third century) and two cliff reliefs (third century).
