Ramhormoz (Lurish: روومز – Rümez; Persian: رامهرمز; also Romanized as Rāmhormoz and Rām Hormuz; also known as Rāmuz)[1] is the capital city of Ramhormoz County, Khuzestan Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 49,822, in 10,966 families.[2]

In ancient times it had been known as Samangan, having been established during the Sassanid period, although an Elamite tomb has been found as well. The historical territory of Ramshir is located in this area, only 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) away from the city.

According to a Sahih Bukhari hadith, Ramhormoz is the ancestral homeland of Salman the Persian.[3][4][5]

The residents of the city are primarily Bakhtiari.
