Chahar Mahal

Chahar Mahal describes a region of villages of mixed Persian, Turkish, and Armenian population stretching west and south of Isphahan, whose main center is Shar Kurd.
Many of the Khans of the Baktiari tribes have long maintained permanent residence in these villages and have exercised suzerainty over them. Because of this Baktiari connection, the carpets produced in the villages have been erroneously given a Baktiari tribal attribution.
