Tajikistan, Custodian of Aryan Civilization in 2006




13 September 2005


Tajikistan proposal for naming 2006 as “Year of Aryan Civilization in Tajikistan” has been formally accepted by the United Nations.

This approval has prompted Tajik officials to foresee some celebrations for September next year, which will also be the 15th anniversary of the country’s independence.

The celebrations will include an international seminar with the participation of scholars and experts of Aryan (Indo-Iranian) civilization from around the world. In this respect, a research team and a Tajik professor made a one month trip to Iran, during which they met with some Iranologists and directors of Iran’s National Library. The team also visited Yazd, Isfahan, Hamadan, Shiraz, and Mashad cities and went back with a supply of information about the ancient civilization and culture of Iran.

On 9th of September, the independence day of Tajikistan, a wrestling championship competition was held in the Stadium of Dushanbe city, capital of Tajikistan, in which wrestlers from India, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and 9 wrestlers from Iran challenged each other.

Tajikistan enjoys a lot of historical and cultural attractions. Dushanbe, Khujand, Kulyab, and Uratepe are the most attractive cities in Tajikistan.

Since the Tomb of the great 14th century philosopher of Iran, Mir Saeed Ali Hamadani, who went from mainland Iran to Kulyab city and stayed there until death, is located in Kulyab of Tajikistan, the cities of Kulyab and Hamadan in Iran are being called sister cities.
