Hesaruiyeh (Persian: حصاروييه, also Romanized as Ḩeşārū’īyeh; also known as Hazār, Hazārū, and Hisāru) is a village in Khatunabad Rural District, in the Central District of Shahr-e Babak County, Kerman Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 221, in 54 families. Hesaruiyeh is located roughly 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) southeast of Shahr-e Babak.
One local author suggests that the name comes from the words Ḩeşār (حصار), meaning "fort", "fence", "wall", or "barrier", and bārū (بارو) meaning "fortification".
Ḩeşārū’īyeh served as the stronghold of the Ismailis, and is home to many Ismailies who have contributed a lot in building Shahr-e-Babak when they ruled Shahr-e Babak 150 to 200 years ago in the 1800s.
Ḩeşārū’īyeh is located close to Road 71, a national highway which connects Tehran in the north to Bandar-Abbas in the South. Beside the forts and the barriers, there is also a horseshoe-like stretched hill nearby called Tale-h Hesar, meaning "hill of the fort".
