Architectural Remains of Early Islamic Era Discovered in Amol

 

 

Tuesday, 12 January 1999

TEHRAN Several architectural remains belonging to the early Islamic era have been unearthed in the course of recent experimental excavations in the ancient city of Amol, in the northern province of Mazandaran. Director of the Cultural Heritage Department of the province Abdolreza Mohajeri-Nejad said that experimental excavations were launched in the region about 20 days ago and so far important discoveries have been made in the area.

He said that in 10 excavation operations many architectural remains of the early Islamic era were unearthed. Mohajeri-Nejad said that the findings have so far revealed that modern water and sewage systems were practiced in that era and that pre-Islamic culture and civilization were dominant till the 8th century Hijira. He called on the Housing and Urban Development Ministry as well as Mazandaran Governor General's office to cooperate with the department to specify limits of the city of Amol.
