This gigantic structure was built during the Sassanid era (224–651).

Today, the western and northern sides of the hill are bordered by the residential districts of Khorramabad.

Gahar is located beside the Oshtorankouh massif in Zagross range in the province of Lorestan. It is 2360m above the sea level,1700m long and 500m wide. The depth of the lake is 28m maximum. The area is one of the few ones in Iran that has been under good protection lately so the environment and flora look almost virgin.
The Gahar lake is among the best sample of lakes that have been appeared due to the landslide. This lake has been located among Oshtorankooh mountain chain and has many similarities to glacial lakes from appearance aspect. The lake has 2/5km length and 500m wide, and it is fed from rills and springs flowing from an adjutant highlands. The big sliding mass that has about 20mm3 volumes, has locked a big valley mouth and caused one natural dam, which the water gradual aggregation behind this dam has caused a lake.
