Firouzabad or Firuzabad (Sassanid Middle Persian Ardasher-Khwarrah اردشيرخوره, or The Glory of Ardasher, post-Arab rule Fīrūzābād فيروزآباد) is a city in Iran. It is located in Fars province south of Shiraz. The town is surrounded by a mud wall and ditch. It had an estimated population of 67,909 in 2005.
Alexander of Macedonia destroyed the original city of Gōr. Centuries later, Ardashir I, founder of the Sassanid Dynasty, revived the city before it was ransacked during the Arab invasion of the seventh century.
Firuzabad is situated in a low-lying area of the region, so Alexander was able to drown the city by directing the flow of a river into the city. The lake he created remained until Ardashir I built a tunnel to drain it. He founded his new capital city on this site.
