We see the strong presence of Lor and Bakhtiari tribes, mostly in the western part of the country, in regions and provinces such as Lorestan, Chaharmahal & Bakhtiari and Khuzestan. Kohkiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province is also another residemce of Lor tribe. Also, part of Hamedan, Ilam and Qazvin is dedicated to the residence of the Lor ethnicity in Iran.
Lor tribes have different clans, which are: Segund, Bakhtiari, Mamasani, Lak and Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad tribes.
The Bakhtiari tribes are descended from the Aryan Parthians and belong to the Great Lor group. The people of Bakhtiari are Muslim and Shiite. Also, the divisions of this Iranian ethnicity reach two tribes, Chahar Lang and Haft Lang. Having beautiful and suitable horses, as well as warrior boys, is one of the factors of Bakhtiari pride.
The Bakhtiari people live mainly in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province. But Bakhtiari land also consists of summer plains and winter places. The winter areas of Bakhtiari people are mostly in the cities of Indika and Masjed Soleiman in Khuzestan province.
