Next Month Mullah-Sadra Dam to Submerge 7,000-Year-Old Hill

 

10 April 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Mehrali Farsi Hill dating back to the 4th millennium BCE will go under water within a month when the Mullah Sadra Dam becomes operational at Iqlid, Fars province.


ISNA said Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) has carried out research studies at the hill and believes its historical significance is comparable to Marvdasht’s Bakoun Hill.


Fars Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department has objected to the Islamic Regime's project and proclaimed Mehrali Farsi Hill as the unique heritage of Iqlid.


The department has also made efforts to inform Iranians about the hill’s historical significance.


Despite these objections, the dam officials have begun to take in water at the site since February.
