Historical Roads to Meymand to be Identified

 

11 May 2004
 

The ancient roads leading to the 3000-year-old village of Meymand, in the central province of Kerman, will be unearthed in the excavations in the region.

Meymand is an ancient village with houses cut like holes inside the mountain rocks, with no chimney or windows.

The village has been inhabited since 3000 years ago, and preliminary studies show that its surrounding is filled with historical stone inscriptions, ossuaries and numerous historical items, the abundance of which all around the village may be an indication of its connection to other areas from all sides, explained director of the studies, Mahnaz Ashrafi.

She added that Meymand enjoys a unique location considering access to Fars, Sistan va Balouchestan, Yazd and Bandar Abbas provinces, leading experts to believe that it was once one of their access roads; it even seems that there once has been a road from Meymand to the ancient city of Pasargade, in Fars.

The village continues its existence with a 132 population who keep some of their old traditions alive.
