Naming :

In the past, the name Joveyn was Gav’yan, which changed to Kav’yan and Jav’yan after the spread of Islam in Iran and the influence of the Arabic language, and is now pronounced as Joveyn.


The historical life of Joven goes back to the Parthian period Etemad al-Saltanah has introduced the history of Guyana as the Parthian (Parthian) period and its founder as Goodarz (one of the kings of the Parthian dynasty).

During the Mongol conquest of Iran in the seventh century AH, until the end of the Safavid rule (early twelfth century AH), Joven province was the center of Freyumd, one of the provinces of Greater Khorasan.

The capital of the province, during the Afshari period, was transferred to Aq QalE and was the center of the province until the end of the reign of Mohammad Shah Qajar.

During the reign of Suleiman Khan Qelichi (ruler of this region), the center of rule was moved from Aq QalE to Qarzi Fortress (present-day Joghatay). The central period of Qarzi Castle was from the end of the reign of Mohammad Shah Qajar to the beginning of the reign of Nasser Ala-Edin Shah Qajar (between 1220 and 1228 AH). In the same years, the power of the Qelichi dynasty was reduced and their rule over the region ended, and according to the measures of the central government, the Joveyn region became a citizen of Bojnourd for several years.

In 1375, Neqab was upgraded from a village to a district, and from the same year, it became a district as the center of the Joveyn district. It was from this time that the Joveyn region was divided into two separate parts in terms of country divisions, and until 2007, this region was a citizen of Sabzevar city in the form of two parts, Joghatay and Neqab .

Finally, during a government decree in 2007, the Joven and Joghatay districts were upgraded to two independent counties.

Joveyn County Anthem :

O Joveyn, O soil of the envelope of our eyes

O sacrifice of your whole soul

In Khorasan, like a green jewel, you are a stable being

Persistent meadows, shines every spring

Tulips of your glory, sleeping in your lap

It is overwhelmed with light and freshness, the drizzle of your rain

May the zeal of your men always be lasting

Stay in the position of the eighth star

May your golden plain be the manifestation of God’s grace

There is work for your people day and night, remembrance and prayer

O Joveyn, O dust of the envelope of our eyes

O sacrifice of your whole soul

There are people in this region, old and young

My heart, be my Iran, be eternal forever
