cultural and recreational complex will be constructed
around the historic palace of the Achaemenian king Cyrus
in Pasargad, Fars province, declared an Iranian architect
who is in charge of the project.
Amir Mansouri told ISNA that his project is inspired by
the ancient monuments located in Pasargad. "The
recreational complex which will include a traditional
Persian garden, will not only serve as a venue for the
public to spend their leisure hours but will also make
them familiar with Iran's ancient history," Mansouri
Noting that the cultural complex is influenced by the main
palace of Cyrus, he asserted that site of the garden in
the cultural complex has been greatly influenced by
culture and architecture style of Pasargad.
"The new cultural and recreational complex will cover
an area of 17 hectares. Although it will be built by using
the state-of-the-art technology, it will remind the people
of the Achaemenid era," he added.
