It involved the creation of two main diversion canals on the river Kârun one of which, Gargar canal, is still in use providing water to the city of Shushtar via a series of tunnels that supply water to mills. It forms a spectacular cliff from which water cascades into a downstream basin. 46 water mills were working in this complex. Shushtar, Historical Hydraulic System consists of 12 parts such as Salaasel Castle, Band-E-Mizan Dam, Kollah-Farangi Tower, Brides, etc.
