The Circle of Ancient Iranian Studies
(CAIS) -- After 20 years, studies of Iranian researchers in Tchogha Zanbil
and Pasargadae historical sites led into tracing nanotechnology in these two
World Heritage Sites. According to researchers, implementing nanotechnology in
these monuments is the main reason for their 3000-year-old survival. Researchers
also believe that the special atomic combination which was used in this
technique caused some difference between the elements of Tchogha Zanbil with its
surrounding natural elements.
started our researches since 20 years ago. Through the tests conducted on some
historical sites including Tchogha Zanbil and Pasargadae, we concluded that our
ancestors were one of the pioneers of nanotechnology, who implemented this
technique in their structures,” said Mansour Afrazeh, scientist researcher to
Persian service of CHN.
to Afrazeh, two nanotechnology techniques were implemented in Tchogha Zanbil
ziggurat including nanoparticles which attract harmful rays from mobiles which
are employed in structures, and nanoparticles which are used in colours.
further explained that Iranians succeeded in inventing a new atomic order in
Tchogha Zanbil some 3000 years ago which was quite different with the natural
elements of its surrounding area.
studies further revealed that contrary to previous beliefs, what connected the
metal part of monuments in Pasargadae historical site to the stones were not
bronze joints but it was the new metal’s atomic structure. This new technique
is considered very important in strengthening the monument and its long term
many developed countries such as the United States and Japan are using this high
technique for making a protective covers in an attempt to reduce the harmful
effects of mobile rays on users’ brains. An apparent similarity can be seen
between this technique and what was practiced during the first millennium BCE in
Tchogha Zanbil,” added Afrazeh.
the implementation of this technique in Tchogha Zanbil, Afrazeh added: “most
probably this cover was used in holy chambers and the music halls of this
in Iranian southwestern province of Khuzestan, 30 kilometres south-west of Susa,
the ruins of the holy city of Elamite Kingdom, surrounded by three huge
concentric walls is found at Tchogha Zanbil. Founded 1250 BC, the city remained
unfinished after it was invaded by Ashurbanipal, as shown by the thousands of
unused bricks left at the site.
The large Tchogha Zanbil temple is one of the ancient monuments of Iran which has been registered on UNESCO World Heritage List. The architectural style employed in the ziggurat resembles those of Egyptian pyramids and Mayan temples. The Tchogha Zanbil ziggurat is the only surviving ziggurat in Iran and is one of the most important remnants of the Elamite civilization.
