The Traditional Zoorkhaneh Sport in Iran

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. Nazanin, a skilled member of Uppersia tour guide team, suggested the guests from France to watch this curious workout routine in Shiraz.
