elevation of Niasar Observatory which is to be
built near Niasar Fire Temple will be lower than
what was earlier planned, a cultural heritage
Nasser Mashhadizadeh told ISNA that the original
plan was to build Niasar Observatory in three
stories but this will be reduced. The decision, he
pointed out, was taken to safeguard the
architectural and ritual values of the nearby
Niasar Fire Temple.
Niasar Fire Temple, which is the first Sasanid
monument, dates back to 1,800 years ago.
Mashhadizadeh said that 50 monuments in Niasar
will be registered as national cultural heritage
sites. The monuments also include Niasar Fire
Temple, its surrounding citadel, mineral water
springs, waterfall and a wheat mill.
