Parse-Pasargad Foundation Outlines Projects

LONDON, 05 March 2006 (CAIS) -- Repair works on the southern section, the tower on Mehr Mountain, tomb of Darius III, 100 Columns Palace and clearing the southern platform of Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) are priorities of Parse Pasargad Foundation in the new Iranian year to March 2007. ISNA quoted Hassan Rahsaz, an expert and counsellor of the foundation, as saying that reconstruction work at southern section, which is home to adobe structures and cuneiform inscriptions, will continue in the Iranian year.
The foundation will clear 150 to 200 meters of the Persepolis platform and direct waterways out of the platform. With the implementation of these projects, the platform in the eastern section of Mehr Mountain will be unearthed.
Rahsaz also hoped that waterways in southern section would be cleared during operations planned in the current year. Since excavated earth was dumped in southern section in 1931, no exploration has been conducted in the area.
