Following the heavy rains across Iran during the past few weeks, water has started flowing again beneath the historical Barrage of Amir or Band-e-Amir, located in Marvdasht near the ruins of Persepolis in Fars province, after many years of drought.

Amir Barrage was built in the time of Adud al-Dawla of Buyid dynasty who ruled Iran from 949 to 983 AD. The barrage is located at the end of Marvdasht Plain, 10 km south-east of Marvdasht County.

With downpours during this year’s Nowruz, the Kor River’s flow increased after years of drought and people came to see water flowing under the Band-e-Amir.

Here are photos of the barrage taken from IRNA:
