A notable archaeological site lies in the vicinity, known as the "four arches (chahar tag) of Jireh". An ancient fort named Ghur-Duz, now a ruin, is reported to lie six miles to the south of Bala Deh.

Balah Deh is reportedly home to around 1000 inhabitants. Residents of the village faced acute water shortages in 2005 due to a technical fault in the water supply system.

A fictional nuclear facility near Bala Deh is prominently featured in the novel Eve of Destruction by Barry Broad.
