From there we drove South into the Loristan province, famous for its bronze work pieces which can be seen in the Louvre, the Metropolitan museum in New York and in the National Museum in Tehran. We stopped to buy some delicious fruit (peaches, figs, apricots, grapes) and have some lunch in Khorrambad before visiting the 3rd Century AD Falik ol Aflak castle. Built by Shapour I of Tagh-e-Bostan, fame the castle was built originally as protection for a caravanserai, around which the town grew up. The castle allegedly held up the Mongol invasion for seven years. Inside was a small ethnographic museum with various photos and cultural artefacts of the Lori people. As we left, Mehrdad broke out some delicious date pastries which we shared around as we drove on to Dezful. After checking in, a few of us took a short walk down to the old bridge for which Dezful is famous and is lit up at night. Then it was time to retire.This blog is part of an Off-The-Beaten-Track Travel Diary. Click on the links below to navigate through this journey.
