Tent to Become Persepolis Information Center




25 September 2005


A tent will be set up besides Persepolis as an information center to familiarize the site visitors with its history, architecture, and archaeological remains before they set feet on the ancient legacy of the Achaemenids.

Display of artifacts and a mock-up of the structure and screening of films about Persepolis to provide information on the architecture of the complex are among programs foreseen for the center.

According to head of Parse-Pasargadae Research Center, Mohammad Hasan Talebian, on the entrance path to the world-famous palaces of Persepolis, a giant tent will be set up to welcome visitors to the site, providing them with utile information.

Since the information center falls within the perimeters of Persepolis, and no construction is permitted there under the regulations of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization, Parse-Pasargadae decided to set it up in a giant tent.

The display of artifacts and a mock-up of the structure and screening of videos on it will help inform tourists, making their visit to the site a more influential one and as a result helping boost the tourism of the historical site.

The news come denying a report by Guardian on September 22, announcing falsely that the tents once used by the late Pahlavi king of kings as a party venue are going to be recreated and revived in their original form.
