Kordestan is one of the thirty provinces of Iran, not to be confused
with the greater geographical area of Iranian Kurdistan.
The rich, beautiful and mountainous lands of this area first encouraged Aryan tribes to settle in this region after their immigration to Iran. It was from here where the first plan to overthrow the Assyrians began, leading to their defeat in 612 BCE, and setting the stage for the commence of the Median empire.
