(CAIS) -- Plans are underway to once again review the
adobe forts and the ramparts near Naqsh-e Rostam, Fars province, which were
earlier explored and the ground of Naqsh-e Rostam will be excavated to access
the main floor of the site which is situated at the same level as that of
Ka’aba of Zoroaster constructed during the Achaemenid dynasty (550-330 BCE).
Announcing this, director of Parse Pasargadae Foundation, Mohammad Hassan
Talebian told Persian service of ISNA that the plan, approved by the Strategic
Council, will seek to determine the shapes of the adobe structures.
According the plan for Naqsh-e Rostam, the road passing near the relic will be
rerouted in order to keep a distance from the site. All parking lots near the
entrance will also be moved to a site allocated for Centre for Welfare Services.
Regarding the lowering the ground to its original lever, Talebian added “if
the project is implemented properly, the actual panoramic view and the glory of
the monument during the Achaemenid dynasty will be revived.”
According to Talebian, the project should begin with a several-year research
program and this needs a sponsor.
the funds made available to us are spent on the main sites such as Takht-e
Jamshid (Persepolis), Pasargadae, Estakhr city, Naqsh-e Rostam, we are obliged
to seek sponsors for certain projects,“ he concluded.
