Kerman Ghirdjan

Kerman, Ghirdjan, or Sirjan, the capital of the above, was formerly an important town strategically and commercially, standing in a plain among the mountains due N. of Murgab, and being protected by two hill-forts. It suffered, however, severely from the siege and subsequent sack by Aga Mahomed Khan in 1794, and has never recovered, though it still has some trade and a few industries.
