The Past

2,000 - 200 years ago

The original name of Hormuz island, Jarun was the successor seaport to Old Hormuz which had been located on the coast of Kerman province in southern Iran, near modern Minab. Around 1315 the centre of gravity of the kingdom of Hormuz was shifted to Jarun, allegedly because of the persistence of attacks against Old Hormuz from tribes on the mainland.

Jarun was the economic centre of the kingdom, trading with India and China, while supporting the cultivation of date-palms and sugarcane. Copper, silver and gold coins minted therre between the mid-fourteenth and early sixteenth centuries have been found in northern Ras al-Khaimah at at al-Mataf, the site of Julfar during this period.
