It is quite fertile and encompasses many historical and religious monuments such as a few jame' mosques, inscriptions and towers."Dokhtar Gabar" and Tang-e-Boraq Gorge are situated in this township.

During the Achamenid empire its name was azargarta. Eghlid's name might come from "kelid," which means key in Persian. Up to the recent years, older people used to call it "kelil." The main reason behind this name is that it was the main gateway to Fars, and specially Persepolis in the old ages and the road called "royal road" used to pass through it. other routes to Persepolis were mountainous and difficult to pass.

Legend says that Eghlid was built by three brothers called Elias, Aslam, and Orjam. There are three main neighborhood (which used to be three castles) in Eghlid bearing the name of these three brothers: Eliasan, Aslaman, Orjaman. Eghlid has many historical places dating back to pre-Islamic era.
