800 Ancient Tombs Discovered in Isfahan



Sunday, 27 November 2001

TEHRAN -- The managing director of the Takht-e Foulad Graveyard Complex in city of Isfahan has said, "Approximately 800 tombs of Isfahani nobles, artists, poets and writers which date back centuries, have been discovered in Takht-e Foulad.

"The historical cemetery of Takht-e Foulad contains graves and tombs that are unique in antiquity and architecture. The 50-hectare complex dates back to the Qajar and Safavid eras. There are also many exquisite engravings on the gravestones."

He added that the Isfahani people consider the graveyard of religious figures to be a holy place.

The whole complex is estimated to be worth about 10 billion rials.

He concluded that, unfortunately, this historical complex has been affected by corruption.
