Jahrom (Persian: جهرم‎‎, also known as Jahrūm)[1] is a city in and the capital of Jahrom County, Fars Province, Iran. At the 2011 census, its population was 114,208, in 25,946 families.[2]

Jahrom is located 170 kilometres (110 mi) southeast of Shiraz, the capital of Fars Province. The majority of people in Jahrom are Persians. Many tropical and sub-tropical plants are grown in Jahrom (i.e. palm date, citrus, wheat. Based on Ahmad Kasravi, the late Iranian historians and philologist, the name Jahrom can be analyzed to render a "warm-place". But a more satisfactory etymology interprets the name as a "green-place".[3]

Jahrom's history goes back some 5500 years when the Achaemenids established the Persian Empire. The biggest hand-made cave in the world is in the south of Jahrom and is called "Sangeshkan Cave".[4]. The Sassanid monument of Qadamgāh is located in south east of the city 190 km from Shiraz, experts believe the monument was constructed during the late Sasanian dynastic era (224-651 CE), and it was a Zoroastrian shrine, probably a fire temple. The monument was registered in Iran’s National Heritage list in 1956 but sadly the site in danger as the result of unprofessional restorations. Jahrom is the birthplace of Barbod, who became the main lyricist and musician in the court of the great Sassanid king Khosrau II(Parviz).
