At the time of Mongol invasion when anarchy was the order of the day in Iran, any tribe which could escape unharmed and survive the Mongol plunder would leave for a safe place.
A tribe headed by Touran settled in Qeshm Island. The tribal chief built a court, a mosque and a bathroom in the village and proclaimed himself the king. Later he was known as Touran Shah (King Touran).
History has it that two Touran Shahs were in Tourian village: one on Hormuz Island and the other on Qeshm. Ibn Battuta writes in his travelogue: Touran, the king of this island, took up residence six farsangs from Qeshm. He is widely known as Mokhles or Tourian.
