The city was founded in the time of Sassanide Shapour I, famous as Shad Shapour, in order to prevent the invasions of Dialameh. It was gradually developed as the main nucleus of QAZVIN (GHAZVIN). After the invasion of Iran by Arabs (the Islamic conquests), this city was surrounded by one of the famous Arab commanders named Bera-ebn Azeb in the year 24 AH (644 CE).
