Museum of Master Ferdowsi & his Great Epic Masterpiece Shahnameh to be Set up

 

News Category: Cultural

 01 December 2003

 

 

A museum specifically devoted to the Greatest of Iranian poet, Master Ferdowsi of Tus (940-1020 AD), and his masterpiece of Shah Nameh (the epic of Kings) which most deservedly obtained the title of the "Persian Holy Book", will be set up within the Tus Museum in the north eastern province of Khorasan.

According to the deputy head of the Cultural Heritage Department of Khorasan for publicity and education Morteza Choupankar, in the past just some sections of the Tus museum was allocated to the great poet, but due to the location of the museum next to the tomb of Master Ferdowsi and his great importance, the Cultural Heritage Organization has decided to turn the museum entirely to a show room of various versions of Shahnameh and other items reminiscent of Master Ferdowsi.

The building of Tus Museum, on the west wing of Master Ferdowsi tomb garden, was designed and constructed primarily as a traditional tea house by Houshang Seyhoun in 1968 but in 1982 it was turned into a museum displaying Archaeological findings of the region and some items related to Master Ferdowsi.
