Map of Persian Empire to depict Iran’s intangible heritage

 

16 August 2005

 

 

Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (CHTO) is currently preparing a map of the Persian Empire of the Achaemenid era, which will also illustrate the diversity of ancient national ceremonies and traditions and the common customs of Iran and neighboring countries.

 

T he director of the CHTO’s Historical Sites Research Center said on Tuesday that a team of experts is collecting the necessary information, which will later be edited and added to the map.

 

“Demarcating the exact borders and historical sites is not the only reason for preparing the map. We also intend to compile comprehensive data on the intangible heritage of Iran as well,” he noted.

 

“Noruz, Mehregan, and Tirgan as well as Charshanbeh Suri (the last Wednesday of the Iranian calendar year, celebrated by jumping over a fire), and Sizdah Bedar (going to parks or out of town on the 13th day of the year) are also celebrated in neighboring countries, including Tajikistan, Turkey, Afghanistan, and Kyrgyzstan,” he added.

 

Iranian culture, civilization, and history are still evident in the neighboring countries of Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Iraq, Armenia, Pakistan, Turkey, and Arran (today Azerbaijan Republic).

 

Establishing academic ties and signing agreements with countries are some of the duties of the CHTO, which also plans to sign joint research, renovation, and tourism memoranda of understanding with other Middle Eastern countries.
