Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andimeshk is a city in Khuzestan province, Iran, located about 34 km north of Shush, on the main road and the rail line between Tehran and Ahvaz. The name first appears in cuneiform tablets from Mesopotamia from the Ur III period (21st to 20th century BCE) in the form Adamshakh, with a probable meaning "Crocodile (Town)." Later it was called "Andamaska" or "Andimaska," meaning "plenty of butter"; local villages like Gheel-AB and Lour and two fortresses were added to it. The city was en route to Ilam and Anshan and subsequently to Lorestan, which made it strategically important until the late Sassanid era. During the Pahlavi dynasty era, Andimeshk received a great deal of modern development projects because of its location and resources. These included a railway, the Dez Dam, the Vahdati Air Base, the Dokoohe military depot and an aluminum factory-silo, as well as many other industrial developments. The city had been connected along the Trans-Iranian Railway in 1929.show more
