I removed the sentence that said that the Noor River flowed through the town. The Noor River does not flow through the town. The Noor River flows on the other side (south side) of the major mountains of the Alborz mountain range. The Noor River flows into the Haraz River at elevation 700m., nowhere near the town of Noor. The change in name of the town has more to do with the county (sharestan) being named Noor, rather than anything else. --Bejnar (talk) 08:07, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
