500 Sasanid Monuments To Be Registered

 

05 March 2005

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Director of Sasanid Studies Base of Kermanshah Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department said 500 historical monuments dating back to Sasanid era and located between the cities of Islamabad Gharb and Qasr-e Shirin (Kōšk-e Šīrīn ) would be added to the cultural heritage list next year, IRNA reported.


Yousef Moradi added there are over 1,000 archeological monuments in the area, 90 percent of which have remained unidentified due to the 1980-88 war and its upshots.


He noted that totally 23 historical sites including 17 in Sar-e Pol-e Zahab , four in Qasr-e Shirin and two in Gilan Gharb have been registered.


A large historical museum is to be constructed in Qasr-e Shirin during the fourth development plan (2005-2010).


“Local people are largely aware of the significance of preserving cultural heritage sites; Still, executive state bodies have failed to give these places the attention they deserve,“ he mentioned.


The border city of Qasr-e Shirin in Kermanshah province boasts of over 5,000 years of history.
