Konar Sandal Ziggurat Will Undergo Repairs

 

06 May 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- An ancient Ziggurat-like structure at Konar Sandal, Jiroft, Kerman province, an internationally known cultural heritage structure, will undergo repairs, said an archaeologist with Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) Nader Soleimani.


He said that ICHTO has earmarked 400 million rials for restoration works at the site.


Elaborating on the process of repairing the ancient edifice, he said that 110,000 mud bricks are needed for fixing on different parts of the structure which were eroded with the lapse of time.


He said that structures at Konar Sandal are made of mud bricks and in order to prevent their destruction, special stairways will be built for visitors, so the other parts of the cultural heritage site will be protected from being destroyed as a result of the movement of visitors.


Soleimani said that Konar Sandal historical site is internationally recognized and since Jiroft boasts of an ancient civilization, ICHTO has given priority to the maintenance of this cultural heritage and save the site from further destruction.


The archaeologist welcomed the allocation of fund for repairing the edifice and said that ICHTO would expedite executive works for its restoration.


“The plan for repairing the historical site of Konar Sandal should be regarded as a national project and extra facilities should be provided for the purpose,“ he concluded.
