The beautiful and fragrant Narcissus flower, which is called Narges in Persian, is known as the symbol of the beloved's beautiful eye in classic Persian poems, such as the meaningful and romance poems of Hafiz. The fertile plains of Fars province are very suitable lands for planting Narcissus and Kazerun town in the west of Fars is known as the home of this stunning flower which is grown during winter.
Every year in January and February the fields around the city of Kazerun, about 65 hectares, change into a heavenly land covered in young and fresh Narcissuses. The whole area is dressed in white and the gentle and sweet aroma of the Narcissuses dazzles everyone’s mind! The most beautiful and fragrant species of Narcissuses is called Shahla which is exported to the other cities of Iran.
Besides the wonderful Narcissus lands and the pleasant mild weather, Kazerun has magnificent historical monuments and attractions, including the giant statue of Shapur and the deep cave, the remains of the ancient city of Bishapur and the glorious bass reliefs of Shapur, the Sassanid king. So, spending a day in Narcissus lands and ancient heritages of Kazerun in February seems to be a very good choice. You can join Uppersia on day tour of Bishapur and experience all the beauties yourself.
