Shahinshahr is the center of Shahinshahr and Meimeh district in Isfahan province, which is located 20 km from Isfahan.
This city was the residence of the family of the Iranian army and the American army. The reason for this residence was the construction of HESA and the activity of Bell helicopter. At the end of the first Pahlavi period, this city was famous for its agricultural use and called Mohiabad farm. Shahin Shahr can be called the first new and pre-designed city in Iran, which is located 20 km north of Isfahan, between the Moallem Freeway and Azadegan Highway, and between Bakhtiardasht and Amirabad, which connects Isfahan Road to Tehran in two directions. It was called Shahinshahr because its map was in the form of a hawk.
With the separation of Borkhar and Meimeh districts from Isfahan city and the formation of a new city of Borkhar and Meimeh in 1989, Shahinshahr was chosen as the center of this district in terms of its location, population and special importance.
