In the down skirts of the Bistoon Mountains by the command of Mohammad Khodabandeh the Oljayto (703-716 AH.) a town was built known as "Soltan Abad Chamchal" or "litle Baqdad". This town was constructed by the Eilkhani soltans in order to be used as the center of Kurdestan instead of "Bahar". In Bistoon excavations in Gamasiyab River banks, on a wall from Sassanide period, relics of the Ilkhanan period have been discovered. These are probably the remainders of the city reputedly known as Chamchal.
