Isfahan Tops Cities with Most Damaged Historical Textures

 

05 June 2004

 

 

Isfahan, as Iran’s most renowned historical city, ranks first among cities with the most damaged historical textures and its dilapidation is exacerbating, head of renovation of Iranian historical textures Mohammad Ali Tabrsa complained.

 

Regretting the complete devastation of historical textures in the holy cities of Mashhad and Qom, Tabrsa said, “The destruction of the historical texture of Isfehan, due to the multitude of its historical sites and monuments, is worse than that of other provinces in Iran, but it should be sadly noted that the historical texture of Qom has been completely destroyed in recent years.

 

” He cited the construction of the infamous Jahan-Nama building in the vicinity of the Naghshe Jahan Square as a blatant example of infringing and ignoring preserved zones. Tabrsa also noted the destruction of the historical textures of Tabriz and Kerman because of the intensified urbanization and said, “While modern cities should be able to meet the growing demands of their citizens’ needs, urbanization must not ruin national assets and cultural monuments.”
