Kheidalou is one of the most important cities of the Ilam civilization and the ancient name of Khorramabad city and it is said that Shahpur city was ordered by the order of Shaopur II Sassanid on its ruins. Among the major cities of Ilam civilization, one can mention Khidala, Madaktu, Ahvaz and Shusha. Many scholars believe that the core of the current city of Khorramabad is Kheidalou, and there are some explanations in the Assyrian-related texts that are consistent with the current location of Khorramabad. In 646 BC, the Assyrian king Assyrian Bin Pal, the Ilam civilization and the city of Kheidalu, destroyed the Elamite government. The ancient civilization of Elam and the city of Kheidalou, after thousands of years of resistance to a powerful warrior such as the Sumerians, the Akkadians, the Babylonians and the Assyrians, broke out from the enemy of the Assyrian. Shapur Prasht is one of the Sassanid cities. This city is named in the place called Khorramabad today and is based on the order of Shapur II. During the excavation of the shelter during the Iran-Iraq war, a number of works were made from the city around the minaret of Birjam in Shamyagh Square. Probably the most important part of the city is in the current neighborhood of Qazi Abad, where the mill and sewage and water supply canals were also obtained. Around Shapur Khash is from the north to the rock and from the west of the Mordan Mountain to the Shapouri Bridge to the east. Atabank is a small chain of Atabakan Lorestan, which ruled in the northern and western parts of Lorestan in the Ler area between 580 and 1006 lunar years. The rulers of this series of Shi’a al-Din Khorshid’s creeds, the founders of the monarchy of Ler, were small, and the last ruler of a small king was killed by Shah Abbas I Safavid and the Atabankaran dynasty was extinct. Khorramabad during the reign of the Safavids and after the abandonment of the Atabakan dynasty of Lorestan, the Safavids in their reign considered the Khoramabad Abad, in particular, the important construction of the important bridge in Khorram Abad pointed out that The name of the Safavid bridge is well known, Safavid bridge is numbered 2345 in the national list of Iran. The city of Khorramabad during the Qajar period was limited to the neighborhoods around the castle of Falak al-Aflak. Neighborhoods such as the back of the market, the doors of the vaults and the door of Babtafer were among the most famous neighborhoods of the city during the Qajar period. The main market of the city is located in the back of the market and the city has been relatively well positioned in terms of growth and prosperity. This period can be considered as the beginning of migration from the small towns of Lorestan province and villages around the city to Khoramabad. Migrations, in addition to raising the city’s population, led to the emergence of new neighborhoods and the development of old neighborhoods. British Orientalist Henry Rawlinson described the city of Khoram Abad as an unrivaled locality in a trip to Lorestan Province in 1836. Rawlinson describes the geographic location of Khorramabad as a mountain range from the east to the far end of the plain, at one point in the mountain range with a creepage through which a river passes through it.
