Bam Overview

Bam is a city in Kerman province, Iran.

The modern Iranian city of Bam surrounds the Bam citadel which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The ancient citadel of Arg-é Bam has a history dating back around 2000 years, to the Parthian dynasty (248 BC-224 AD), but most buildings were built during the Safavid dynasty. The city was largely abandoned due to an Afghan invasion in 1722, which ended during the Safavid rule.
Bam was devastated by an earthquake in December 2003.
