KHAR, a small but very fertile province of Persia, known by the ancients as Choara and Choarene; pop. about 10,000. The governor of the province resides at Kishlak Khar, a large village situated 62 m. S.E. of Teheran, or at Aradan, a village 10 m. farther E. The province has an abundant water-supply from the Hableh-rud, and produces great quantities of wheat, barley and rice.
