S.E. of Kerman at an elevation of 1720 ft. Its population is about 2000. It is the capital of the province and situated on the banks of the Bampur River which flows from east to west and empties itself about 70 m. W. into a hamun, or depression, 50 m. in length, and called Jaz Murian. The old citadel of Bampur, on a hill about 100 ft. high 3 miles north of the river, fell into ruins. A new fort called Kalah Nasseri, was built at Fahraj, 15 miles further east, in the 1880s. Fahraj, which now has a population of about 2500, has become more important than Bampur. Fahraj, which is also known as Pahura (or Paharu or Puhra), is by some identified as the Poura where Alexander the Great halted on his march from the Indus region of Pakistan, but others identify Poura with another Fahraj near Bam, or even with Bampur itself. The population is Baluch, who speaks Baluchi language.
