Protection of Rey Heritage Essential

 

23 July 2005

 

Preservation of Bibi Shahrbanoo Mountain, Seljukid Citadel and Parthian Rashkan Fortress was placed high on the agenda of the cultural heritage and tourism working group of Tehran Governor General's Office, ILNA reported.

Addressing the working group's third session, deputy head of Iran Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization for preservation and restoration affairs, Qadir Afroond, said, "The three monuments have been damaged due to the presence of cement factories in Rey, south of Tehran. Immediate action is required to tackle the awkward situation, before it leads to the destruction of the historic region."

Afroond noted that the Seljukid Citadel and the Parthian Rashkan Fort used to be the seat of government during the Daylamid dymasty, adding "the historic relics are counted as highly valuable monuments of the Islamic era in Tehran."

He recalled that the Rey region rose to fame during 1934-36, thanks to extensive studies by American archeologist, Schmitt, in the area. However, with Schmitt's death, his reports on Rey remained unpublished forever.
