Studies to Determine Tafresh Antiquity

 

12 November 2004

 

 

Historical and cultural studies on historic monuments in Tafresh, Markazi province, will begin soon.
Preliminary information provided by archeologists show that Tafresh dates back to the period of the Median dynasty.


The city is situated to the north of Arak and ranks second after Saveh in terms of historical monuments, director-general of provincial Tourism and Cultural Heritage Department said.


"Many cultural and historic monuments from the Sasanid era to Islamic period, including the Safavid, Zandieh and Qajar are still located in Tafresh," added Mohammad Hosseini.

 

Hosseini asserted that Markazi Tourism and Cultural Heritage Department intends to draw up a cultural and historical ID for the province's historic monuments and provide researchers with a more precise account of the era to which the monuments belonged. "The research will also determine the era the Zoroastrian clerics of Tafresh belonged to," he noted.
