Ancient Monuments Neglected

 

17 June 2005

  

 

Most historic edifices and monuments in Masjed Soleiman, Khuzestan province have been without proper protection and under constant threat from vandals and smugglers.


The most important historic monument in the region, 'Chah Shomareye Yek' (Number One Well), is the only site which is well protected since it is still under the custody of the National Iranian Oil Company.


Stating the above to ISNA, Farid Kavosh, executive secretary of the Cultural Heritage Fans Association of Masjed Soleiman said, "Despite the establishment of the department, most historic monuments receive no protection from cultural officials. The department has conducted some useful works in other areas, but the historic monuments in Masjed Soleiman have been largely neglected."

He stressed that it is the duty of Iran's Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) to protect, refurbish, identify and promote the region's cultural heritage, adding that members of the association have also notified the department's head office in Ahvaz but to no avail.


Kavosh urged cultural officials to take effective measures to protect historic sites and monuments as promised earlier during the visit to Masjed Soleiman by vice president and the head of the ICHTO, Hossein Marashi.
