The Old City of Jiroft is located on the western banks of Halil Rud and dates back to the Seljuq (1038-1118) era. Currently known as the Ancient city of Daqyanous, old Jiroft was one of the largest Islamic cities of Iran and was a center of trade in Seljuq times. Venetian merchant traveler, Marco Polo (1254-1324), in his travels, passed through this city, describing it as a glorious place. The remains of a 1,200-year-old mosque and a bath have been discovered in excavations of the area. The ceramic artifacts and potshards found at this site portray the evolution of pottery during the Islamic era.
