Burial Becomes Costlier in Tehran

Burial Becomes Costlier in TehranBurial Becomes Costlier in Tehran

The Islamic City Council of Tehran approved on Tuesday a measure that increases the costs of burial plots at Behesht-e Zahra, the largest cemetery in Iran located in southern Tehran. 
As land is becoming scarce in the cemetery’s Phase-II where 95% of plots are full, the costs of each plot increased by 20% compared with the fiscal 2016-17 to reach 90 million rials ($2,093). 
The prices of plots located in a more desirable section of the cemetery with more trees and easier access, Phase-I, have remained unchanged at 150 million rials ($3,488).
