Dais of Khosrow Palace in Qasr-e Shirin Discovered

 

12 June 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- The team of archaeologists working on the ruins of the Khosrow Palace near the city of Qasr-e Shirin in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah discovered the dais of the Sasanid palace during their current round of excavations, the Persian service of CHN reported on Sunday.

 

“The platform was used by the ruler or owner of the palace,” team director Yusef Moradi said. 

 

“The new excavations and studies on smashed ceilings have determined that the palace was destroyed as a result of an earthquake. Texts written by Iranian and Arab historians also mentioned a devastating quake which destroyed the palace,” he added.

 

Archaeological studies are underway to determine the original facade of Khosrow Palace.

 

“The documents and the texts have given a fairly exact understanding of the architecture of the palace. It had two sections, private and official, and studies have been carried out on the latter. The team will centre on this section and the other section in the next phases of excavations,” Moradi said.

 

The team of archaeologists also few days ago discovered ruins of the ceremonial hall of the palace.
