Kish history

Kish Island has many different names in the history (Kamtina, Arakia (Greek: Αρακία), Arakata, and Ghiss). Kish Island’s strategic geographic location served as a way-station and link for the ancient Assyrian and Elamite civilizations. Their sailboats navigated from Susa through the Karun River into the Persian Gulf region. They passed Kish, Qeshm, and Hormoz islands along the southern coastline. It should be noted that Hormoz is the name of a Persian king.

Kish in the Persian civilization

With establishing the Achaemenid dynasty, the Persian Gulf region was profoundly affected. Kish became an economical and political link with the civilization of the Medes and the Persians. In the shadow of the Persian Empire, the islands in the Persian Gulf became prosperous. Navigation in the Persian Gulf was developed, and better vessels were used to carry passengers and goods. In 325 BC, Alexander the Great commissioned Nearchus to set off on a voyage to the Sea of Oman and the Persian Gulf region. Nearchus’s writings on Arakata contain Kish Island in antiquity. When Marco Polo visited the Imperial court in China, he commented on the Emperor’s wife’s pearls; he was told that they were from Kish.

Kish is dazzling in beauty, civilization and history. See some of the images of Kish. We believe images can explain the story of Kish better than a long written news.
