Moves to Prevent Persepolis Erosion

 

News Category: Achaemenian Dynasty

 10 November 2005

 

 

Solid teak wood will be used to cover the ancient monuments of Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) to prevent the erosion of stones by visitors walking on them.


Architect Hassan Rahsaz told ISNA that the studies on protecting the cultural heritage site from erosion began in 1986 and the project was taken up in 2004-2005.


The stairways and gates of Persepolis are being covered by Indian solid teak wood to preserve them from erosion and rain.


Some 125,000 square meters of the surface on path used by visitors to Takht-e Jamshid will be covered with wood, he said.


Asked about the restoration of Faratadara temple at Persepolis, the architect said that repair of the temple which is located 350 meters northwestern of Parse began one and a half years ago and about 1,600 square meters of the temple has been restored so far. Executive works will continue until the beginning of the rainy season.


Part of a marble statue was unearthed from the temple in 2000 and another section was discovered this year.
