Jahrom's history goes back some 2500 years when the Achaemenids established the Persian Empire. The Sangeshkan or Sang-Shekan cave, said to be the largest man-made cave in the world, lies to the south of Jahrom. The Sassanid monument of Qadamgāh is located to the 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.
