Persepolis Project Delayed

 

13 July 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Arrangements for specifying the route to be used by visitors to Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) historical site have been delayed due to financial reasons.


The arrangements were envisaged to protect the historical site from damages arising from erosion caused to the surface of the monuments by the people visiting the monuments of Persepolis, said Persian Service of CHN.


Director of Persepolis historical complex Maziar Kazemi said that agreements on the project have been signed, but, its implementation needs financial support which has not yet been provided.

The magnificent monument was built in 518 BCE. The compound is a major tourist site in view of its prestigious monuments and museum.


He said that publishing house of Parse and Parsargad Research Foundation was established in Persepolis this year and tourist pamphlets have been printed.


Kazemi added that funds for developing the cultural sites used to be provided each year during the month of June, but, the cultural heritage and tourism organization has not provided credits for arranging the compound to specify the routes that tourists will take while visiting the site.
