Dehloran is located in the south of ILAM province 910 kilometers from Tehran enjoying an arid and semi-arid climate. It is situated on the southern slope of Dinarkooh. In past, it was known as "the village of Lurs".
The remains of historical monuments and discovered vestiges indicate that the antiquity of the region dates back to the pre-historic and Sassanide periods. Dehloran has not developed due to water shortage.
The city was severely damaged in the imposed Iraq war. But now it is reconstructed and is paid due attention. This area is known for its oil fields with a long history of exploitation.
