Varamin’s Ancient Tower Under Threat

 

30 July 2005

 

 

The 800 years old tower of Alladoleh is on the verge of destruction due to negligence of officials at Varamin Municipality and Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department.


Alladoleh Tower belongs to the Ilkhanid dynasty (1256-1380 AD) and has a unique architecture which is distinctive to Iran’s Islamic style.


Although the tower has attracted many domestic and foreign tourists, nothing has been done to protect it from the damages inflicted by vendors and other people.


Varamin Municipality began renovating the tower several weeks ago but the city’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department prevented moves to conduct repairs.


A member of Varamin Artists Society, Manouchehr Souri, told IRNA that Alladoleh Tower had turned into a garbage dumping grounds for vendors, but Varamin Municipality helped to protect the tower from further damage.


“Lack of restoration of the tower has resulted in the destruction of many inscriptions in the structure,“ Souri added.
