Ramhormoz (Persian رامهرمز historical name Samargān ) is an ancient city in the southwest of Iran in the province of Khuzestan.

Archaeological finds

In April 2009, archaeologists uncovered two 2500 year old palaces and 18 columns, which can be dated back to the Elamite, Achaemenid and Sassanid period. Five of these columns were restored. The findings suggest that the place is located on the ancient Persian king road that once linked with Persepolis Apadana Palace in the Susa and in the course of which more than a hundred palaces and caravanserais were.

Already in May 2007, in addition to a number of artifacts two U-shaped tombs with skeletons of a woman and a girl were found, which probably belonged to a Elamite royal family.

Some of the discoveries could be introduced into the Ramhormoz Cultural Office, while other finds were destroyed by road works and smuggling activities.
