Azadi (Shahyâd-e Âryâmehr) Tower

in State of Disrepair

 

 

 

17 September 2005

 

 

Âzâdi Tower [formerly known as Shahyâd-e Âryâmehr], a landmark of the Iran's capital city and venue of numerous political gatherings, is currently in pressing need of repair and restoration works.


According to the Persian daily Iran, preliminary studies on repairing the tower have been conducted and the technicalities have been reviewed.


Deputy Tehran Mayor for technical and development affairs Mohammad Aliabadi said that Tehran Municipality has submitted a report to the parliament seeking funds to repair the tower and the issue is being followed up by Tehran Municipal Council.


Underground structures of the tower had been reserved for cultural activities and they badly need repair to avert damages to the high rise building.


Tehran Municipal Councilor Rasoul Khadem said that some seven billion rials will be needed to repair the building adding that the condition of the tower is a cause of worry.


He said that underground structures of the tower have become weak in the past 34 years since its construction and need to be reinforced.


Tehran Municipality officials said that the underground structure, which accounts for more than half of the entire area of 10,000 square meters of Azadi Square, has been weakened by seeping water in the past three decades which require technical overhaul at the earliest.
