Restoration works begin on Safavid cistern
Restoration work has commenced on a traditional mud-brick cistern, which is located in Sarayan county in South Khorasan province, northeastern Iran. Sarayan’s Ab-Anbar (cistern), which dates from the Safavid era (1501–1736), has undergone some rehabilitation work that includes new pavement for the surrounding using traditional stones, a local tourism official said on Saturday.
The concept of Persian Qanat was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2016, representing a selection of eleven aqueducts across Iran. Qanats, according to UNESCO, provide exceptional testimony to cultural traditions and civilizations in desert areas with an arid climate. ECI reports, citing Tehran Times.
