Nimvar Historical Dam near Mahallat
Nimvar Historical dam with its ancient and large barricade is located in Nimvar (Mahalat). The same dates back to the Sassanide period or according to some narrations to even before the birth of Christ. The dam is approximately 100 m. in length and 9 m. in width. The materials used for construction are generally huge slabs of stone and mortar. But in spite of its antiquity, the dam has retained its former fortifications.

The dam water seeps in a way through its walls to the bed of the Nimvar stream. Thus being utilized for irrigation purposes in the area. Surrounding this archaeological dam are recreational spots.
