Struggling to Salvage Heritage structures

Following the demolition of several historical structures in Fars and Hamedan provinces, heritage authorities held a meeting to explore strategies to better protect cultural heritage sites. 
In a bid to investigate the matter and make decisions to avoid further loss of historical mansions, senior relevant authorities convened at the headquarters of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization on Sunday to discuss the issue, ISNA reported.
Referring to the old texture of Shiraz, Mohammad Hassan Talebian, an ICHHTO’s deputy, explained that a huge part of damage inflicted to the historical structures in the city have been due to development projects such as the plan for expansion of Shah Cheragh Mosque.
Reportedly, the directors of the mosque had bought several historical buildings from their owners years ago to expand the its area.
Notwithstanding the objection of ICHHTO’s protection unit, the houses named Salimi and Montaseri, both inscribed on the National Heritage List in 2003, were flattened in line with the scheme.
