Ahwaz IS 874 kilometers far from Tehran enjoying a warm and humid climate. Ahwaz is one of the oldest cities of the country which is named in ancient inscriptions. Today Ahwaz is a new city constructed on the ruins of the old city.

Some historians belive Ahwaz is the same city as Aguinis that is mentioned by Straboon. But in great extend it is constructed in the site of old city of Tariana. The Sassanide king Ardeshir I reconstructed Tariana and named it Hormozd Ardeshir and built a dam on Karoon River close to it. The city flourished in his time considerably and became the capital of Suziana (Khuzistan) instead Susa.

When Arabs conquered Suziana, they called the city Sough-Ol-Ahwaz. Ahwaz was thriving in the time of the Omavi and Abbassi Caliphate and was the trade center for sugar and sugarcane. But in the late 3rd century AH it lost its importance. Finally in mid 9th century it was really destroyed due to destruction of the great dam close to it. After the excavation of Suez Canal in late 19th century, European colonialists paid attention to the south region of Iran so it caused some evolution in the trade activities of the city. In the reign of Nasereddin Shah, the Qajar king, Karoon River was used for development of shipping activities and a port was constructed close to it known as Naseri Port.

Subsequently Ahwas was renamed as Nasseryeh but very soon it got its old name. There is a remains of an old bazaar known as Moin Bazaar which was constructed by the governor of the province. Present Khazallieh is an old neighborhood of the city. In Bisotoon inscription, there is the name of Awaja that can be ancient Ahwas.
