Qamar Rood River

Related to Qom city (located in Qom province)
The said river takes its source in the Zard Kooh of Bakhtiyari, and after following a long course, flows into the Salt lake. This river was primarily known as 'Darband'. In the vicinity of 'Akhteh Khoon', to the south west of Golpayegan, a dam has been constructed on it. The Qamar Rood river flows within the limits of the townships of Faridan, Golpayegan, Khomein, Mahalat, Delijan and Qom, irrigating the lands therein.
It is said that the city of Qom existed in the pre-Islamic ages, whereas, some believe that the same belongs to the post Islamic times. Kom was the name of the ancient rampart of the city of Qom, thus, the Arabs called it Qom (or Ghom).
