Project to Renovate and Conserve World’s Oldest Ziggurat

 

07 June 2004

 

 

World’s oldest ziggurat and relics of ancient architecture discovered in Kashan’s 7,000-year-old Siyalk will be renovated and conserved.


Archaeologists have managed to find relics of ancient architecture and mudbrick-made structures in recent seasons of excavations in the Siyalk historical site, all of which in dire need of renovation.


“Since these great structures are made of mud brick and have been corroded over the years by climate conditions, they will be subject to an emergency repair and conservation action plan over the next couple of months, including replacing damaged mud bricks and plastering the walls,” manager of the project Hamid Fahimi said.


The Siyalk historical site, located near the central city of Kashan, is one of the richest ancient sites in the globe. Archaeologists have managed to discover the oldest ziggurat of the world, dating back 2,800 years and made with over a million mud bricks.
