Fortunately there are more informations regarding post Islamic Isfahan. In 643 AD the city was invaded by Ummayads, and then Abbasids ruled in Isfahan until 931 AD.
Al- Jibal was one of Arab Caliphate provinces and Isfahan was the capital of this province. During 10th century the city was ruled by princes who belonged to Fars and Iraq. The Ziarids and Buyids were the most prominent rulers of this area.
Mardavij revolted against the Abbasids and announced the independence of Gorgan and Mazandaran. He expended his domain of independence to Isfahan. Mardavij was faithful to the ancient Persian traditions. The Seddeh festival was held on the banks of Zayandeh Rud in 935. After assassination of Mardavij the Ziarid ruling era was ended.
