Archaeological Excavations Around Kaboud Mosque in Tabriz



Monday, May 03, 1999

TEHRAN -- Researchers from the Cultural Heritage Organization carried out excavation operations around Kaboud Mosque in Tabriz and found relics of tombs and pieces of porceleans dating back to the 8th and 9th centuries BC, the Central News Bureau (CNB) reported from Tabriz. CNB quoting the head of the excavation team Nasrollah Motamdi said the relics were found nearly 50 meters away from Kaboud Mosque, and added that the team began work on April 29. Expressing the hope that by gaining access to the relics they could obtain sufficient information on the civil record of the city of Tabriz, Motamedi said considering that there is no document available which illustrates the historical record of Tabriz during the pre-Islam era, the relics discovered can divulge the historical record of the city.

It is noteworthy that the city's municipality has previously launched construction operations around the mosque but had been faced with opposition by the Cultural Heritage Organization and as a result stopped the operaions. As a consequent, a large number of the antique objects were destroyed during excavations carried out by the mentioned municipality.
