This ethnic group has a certain feature: they are not warriors' people, they fought just one time in history during the Ottoman Empire attack. Lurs were the first who made peace with the Achaemenids and also the first people that translate Koran to farsi .

          In center of city, on the top of a large hill, there is a tall citadel called Falak-ol-Aflak , a relic of the Sassanid era.
