Illegal Constructions Threaten Tepe Siyalk

 

25 July 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Illegal constructions in the vicinity of the ancient mound of Siyalk near Kashan, have endangered the registration of the monument on the UNESCO list of global cultural heritage sites.


Confirming the news, director of Siyalk Cultural Heritage and Tourism Station Zahra Saroukhani told Persian Service of CHN that the entity is currently preparing the case of the unique site for submission to the world cultural body.


This is while one of the most important issues regarding cultural heritage cases is safeguarding the precinct of the monument, which has not been observed in the case of Siyalk, she added.


According to Saroukhani, if the constructions near the site continue, UNESCO may turn down the proposal to register the site.


The ancient hill is located in Kashan, Esfahan province, and has an antiquity of 6,000 years.


Stating that the efforts to save the prehistoric mound are still continuing, Saroukhani said that to prevent construction activities near Siyalk, it was proposed to set up a committee made up of representatives of Kashan Municipality, Governor’s Office and Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department.


“If the committee is established, it will be easier to deal with illegal construction near the site,“ she concluded.
