Chahargah, in the Persian language, is a combination of the words for "Four” (Chahar) and “position” (Gah)."  Gah (گاه) is a suffix that can be added to nouns to indicate both position in time and place.

Chahargah is the name of one of the twelve dastgahs or musical modes or scales, of traditional Persian music. Meaning 'pattern' or 'set of directions' a dastgah is a compositional unit, like major and minor in western music, that can change the affect and experience of the piece. It is used as the basis for composition and improvisation. Chahargah incorporates the most varied emotions amongst all the dastgahs, from epic and dancing compositions to sad and fearful ones.
