Various wall paintings by the local artists of Chabahar in south-eastern Iran have given the port city an interesting, colourful look.

Chabahar port city is located in the south-eastern Sistan and Baluchestan province by the coast of Oman Sea and the Indian Ocean. Its name has been derived from the term “Chahar-Bahar”, meaning “four springs” in Persian, which refers to the city’s temperate climate during the year’s different seasons.

Chabahar is one of the most thriving, prominent Iranian ports for being the closest route from Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan to the international waters.

The port city’s importance, however, isn’t limited to its commercial position: it is home to many tourist destinations. Among the most beautiful attractions of Chabahar are the Portuguese Castle, the Mud Volcano, the miniature “Martian” Mountains, and Lipar Wetland.

A while ago, a family painting contest titled “Draw for the Earth” was held in Chabahar with the theme of environmental protection.

What follows are Honar Online Agency’s photos of wall paintings in the Iranian port city:
