The city is home to the major faculties of the University of Mazandaran. Babolsar has an area of 446 square kilometers and a population of over 30,000, with seasonal variations.The city acquired its current name in 1927. The city's historic name is Ma had-e Sar or Mashhadsar, meaning "the special way to Mashhad, referring to the only road connecting the northwest of Iran to the northeast, including Mashhad, which passed through Babolsar. By the 18th century, Babolsar had become a busy commercial port. During the reign of Nadir Shah, it was the base for Iran's Caspian fleet. By 1909, the port yielded 12 percent of the total customs revenue of Iran. However, by 1895, ports in Gilan were already competing with Babolsar.show more
