Iran’s Beauties in Photos: Chogan Historical Canyon

The historical Chogan Canyon is located 23 kilometers away from the city of Kazeroun in Fars Province, southern Iran.

The natural and historical canyon is close to the ruins of the ancient city of Bishapur.

It is formed by five villages of the Upper Chogan Canyon, Lower Chogan Canyon, Sassan, Kashkooli and Middle Chogan Canyon.

The strait is home to a rich and unique treasure of art pieces and carvings from Sasanid Empire.

Chogan Canyon is among major tourist attractions of the province, with carvings similar to those of the Taq-e Bostan (Arch of the Garden) in Kermanshah and Naqsh-e Rajab and Naqsh-e Rustam near Persepolis close to Shiraz.

What follows are Tasnim’s photos of this historical canyon:
