Historical Hydraulic System which may have origins in the reign of King Darius (5th century bc). Canals from the river Kârun supply water for the city of Shushtar via tunnels which power mills and then cascade into the basin visible here. The system includes bridges, dams, basins, mills and a tower where the water levels are monitored. Designated a World Heritage Site.
