Ancient Architectural Relics Discovered in Savojbolaq

 

 

Wednesday, 06 January 1999

TEHRAN ancient architectural relics which date back to 8,000 years ago, were discovered in Sovojbolaq's suburb. The relics belong to the time of Sasanid Dynasty. According to the Public Relations Department of the Cultural Heritage Organization, during the first phase of the excavation operation headed by Dr. Yousef Majidzadeh in Ozbaki Hill, several architectural layers have been studied. Meanwhile, parts of an small castle, belonging to Sasanid dynastic era, were also uncovered in this excavation operation.

The archaeological studies on the Ozbaki Hill reveal that the region between the salt desert in east, southern skirts of Alborz Mountain in north, eastern skirts of Zagros mountain in west and Isfahan Province in south enjoyed very complicated cultures. 

The Ozbaki Hill is among important regions of Iran Central Plateau. The findings in this region can answer many questions about different cultures which existed in this region some 8,000 years ago.
