In ancient stood on the border between the sasanide province, known as Asurestan, and royal province, where was situated the capital Ctesifonte. Here the noble waited the arrival of the sasanide sovereign Narseh (293-302 AD), after his victory over Wahrām III, to swear their loyalty. Also for this reason, the sasanide monument of Paikuli is very important in this field of research on the history of Iran because of its ancient walls Narseh, ascended to the throne, defeating the nephew Wahrām III, wanted was a long inscription engraved in two main languages of the kingdom, mid-persian and Partian, in memory of the events of his turbulent political career.
