Takht-e Soleyman or “The Throne of Solomon" in Iran


  Takht-e Soleyman meaning “the throne of Solomon” is the holiest shrine of Zoroastrianism and the most important relic of the former Sassanid Empire .The archaeological site of Takht-e Soleyman, in north-western Iran, is situated in a valley set in a volcanic mountain region. It was created in the 6th century by the Persian Empire of the Sassanids, and was partially rebuilt during the Ilkhanid period 13th-14th century. They added new constructions and reused the site as a palace. The site officially comprises one location, but there are 6 sublocations such Takht-e Soleyman with its firetemple and Anahita temple, the small hill Zendan-e Suleiman (‘Solomon’s prison’), a mountain to the east that served as quarry for the construction of the site, the archaeological mound Tepe Majid and Belqeis Mountain with a citadel .Our British guests, who had been accompanied by well-informed guide-drriver, Reza, believed that Takht-e Soleyman represents an outstanding example of Zoroastrian sanctuary, integrated with Sasanian palatial architecture within a composition, which can be seen as a prototype.

Zoorkhaneh in Yazd


Zoorkhaneh is a place to gain strength, reinforce the virtues of sportsmanship, modesty, humbleness and avoid arrogance. Zoorkhaneh sports are done in a roofed area; the building resembles ancient temples or cellars. The entrance is smaller than usual doors. The rood is high and domed, like a mosque. “The Gowd”, the hollow, deeper area in the middle of the Zoorkhaneh, is where the sports are done. The Zoorkhaneh being a sacred place, there only the chest, pure, modest, the morally and bodily clean men; and those men who are free from evil thoughts come together. Leila, a skilled member of Uppersia tour guide team, suggested the guests from Netherlands to watch this curious workout routine in Yazd.
