Pasargade will Never Drown

pasargadae kourosh tomb(3).jpgRecently I posted about The Islamic Republic of Iran having embarked on the finalizing stages of a dam construction in south of Iran that would have ultimately drowned the archeological sites of Pasargad and Persepolice.

There was a lot of media attention to this and we are happy to note that CHN has addressed this issue. Here is a press release from them.

 CHIN Reports..

These days a widespread rumor is heard among Iranians and culture lovers around the world that the historical sites of Pasargadae and Persepolis will be drowned after Sivand dam is put into service. But considering the distance of the dam and its reservoir perimeters all the rumors are totally dismissed, and the safety of the world heritage sites guaranteed.
