Map of Takht-e Soleiman Almost Complete

 

News Category: Cultural

 08 November 2005

 

 

A French mapmaking company, Jizman, winner of a tender for cartography of Takht-e Soleiman archeological site in West Azarbaijan province, has already completed mapping of some 1,350 hectares of the site.


The largest and most beautiful fire-temple dating back to the Sassanid dynastic Era (224-651 AD) is located at Takht-e Soleiman archeological complex, according to CHN.


This fire-temple was in use for several centuries and a very mysterious fountain runs alongside the Takht-e Soleiman Lake.


The existence of both fire and water in the temple indicated that the Sassanians worshipped both of them.


Manager of Takht-e Soleiman project said that floor plans of different sections of this ancient edifice, including architectural remains of Belqis fortification, prison wall and ancient stone quarries have already been completed.


The map drawn up by Jizman also shows the development process of the villages surrounding Takht-e Soleiman.
