Pol-e Dokhtar (also Romanized as Pol Dokhtar and Pul-i-Dukhtar) is a city in the Lorestan Province of Iran. The ruins of a Sasanian bridge over the Kashkan River are still visible today a few kilometers north of the city; that structure was part of a Sasanian Royal road that connected the Persian capitals Istakhr and Bishapur with towns in central and northern Mesopotamia. In 1992, a horde of ancient objects were found in the nearby Cave Kalmakareh (also referred to as Cave Kalmakarra).

In the summer of 1992, the Iranian Department of Antiquities discovered a hoard of ancient silver vessels in a cave (Cave Kalmakarra) near Pol-e Dokhtar. A silver bucket with an Akkadian inscription of the Assyrian king Esarhaddon was one of the objects found there.
