Guran village, located 90 kilometers west of Qeshm Island, is the main launch production center on the island. The village is one of the largest centers for the production of traditional launches in Iran. The produced boats and launches are used between the islands and ports of Iran and the states of the Persian Gulf. In some cases, they are also used on long trips to India and Africa. The masters from Peyposht design most of the launches built on Qeshm Island to be floating, both in terms of volume and type.
Located 78 kilometers away from Qeshm Island, there is a historic dam called Guran. Experts believe that its foundation dates back to the Achaemenid period and its crown was built during the Sassanid era.
Due to the high value of fresh water in Qeshm Island, the inhabitants of this island have always regarded the optimal use of this vital liquid as their specific lifestyle. A sample of this case can be observed in Peyposht’s historic dam, which its cover and pond have survived since the Sassanid era.
