Sections of Achaemenid' Kabeh Zartosht at Naqsh-e Rostam have Collapsed

 

13 March 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (Shapour Suren-Pahlav - CAIS) -- As the result of the Islamic regime' negligence towards pre-Islamic Iranian heritage, sections of the Achaemenid structure known as Kabeh Zarthost which has recently renamed as the  Bardia Tomb, located at Naqsh-e Rostam in Fars province, have collapsed. 

 

The regime has announced that the structure will be repaired and the surrounding walls will also be reinforced. A master craftsman, who has undertaken the repair operation of Parse historical site, Hassan Rahsaz said that walls of the structure were repaired in 1966-1967. The walls were located eight meters below the surface of the surrounding areas and the structure itself was excavated after 1935.


Rahsaz noted that sections of the walls were built in 1967 to preserve the mud-bricks which were used in constructing the temple. The walls have been damaged in the past 30 years and should be repaired for Norouz holiday season when visitors from different cities come to see the cultural heritage site.


He said that the Zoroastrian Temple was built of limestone, a category of white stone which has remained durable.
