The township of Falavarjan is a small township to the west of the city of Esfahan. The ancient name of this city was 'Barze' which means the branch of a tree or cultivation. This name gradually changed to 'Varjan'. During the Safavid period due to the construction of a bridge on the Zayandeh Rood (river), Varjan was renamed Polavarjan and thence to Falavarjan.
The most important historical structures of this township are in the Peykaran Mausoleum and the historical mosque of the village of Oshtorjan.
