Khorramshahr city - Khuzistan Province

Khorramshahr was Iran's and Persian Gulf's biggest port before Iran\s revolution in 1979. During the war between Iran and Iraq which were clearly imposed by Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein in those ages, Khorramshahr destroyed and ruined after Iraqi invasion.

Now, after nearly 26 years from the beginning of the war, Khorramshahr is still a poor and lorn land, with heavy casualties you can see in your own eye every where in the city.
