Road Work Stopped to Save Sasanid Dam

 

01 August 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Construction of a road in the vicinity of the Sasanid Bandbor Dam in Jahrom has been brought to a standstill by the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Department of Fars province, with an aim to save this Sasanid structure from becoming another victim of alleged development projects.


According to CHN, the department has also delineated a new path for the road and called on the Ministry of Energy to redirect the route.


“The Ministry of Energy was constructing a road, part of which passes over this Sassanid dam which is registered on the National Heritage List. This necessitated that the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Department of Fars province intervene to stop the project,“ said Mosayyeb Amiri, deputy head of the department for preservation and restoration affairs.


Bandbor is a historic dam which was constructed in present-day Jahrom, Fars province, during the Sassanid rule (224-651 CE)..
