GREAT TO KNOW
  1. Persian or Farsi, is one of the world's oldest languages still in use today, and is known to have one of the most powerful literary traditions and potentials. Persian poetry with masterpieces of Saadi, Hafiz, Rumi and Omar Khayyam is well known around the world. As all Persians are quick to point out, Farsi is not related to Arabic, it is a member of the Indo-European family of languages.

  2. The Peacock Throne was brought to Persia by Nadir Shah in 1739 after he had ransacked Delhi. Previously it had been the throne of the Mughal Emperors.The English word checkmate comes from the Persian "shah mat", meaning "the king is dead".

  3. Golestan Palace, the oldest of the historic monuments in Tehran was the Qajars' royal residence, and its garden is an oasis of coolness and peace in the heart of the city. The major building, architecturally unpretentious, houses a museum with objects from the Qajar period.

  4. Two of Iran's biggest ski resorts are 1-2 hours north of Tehran in the Alborz Mountains. Shemshak is the closest of the two and its steep slopes are considered more appropriate for expert skiers and boarders. Dizin is the larger resort with more facilities and is considered better for beginners and intermediates.

  5. The stunning mosques of Isfahan are among the most beautiful and interesting in the world - Imam Mosque, Sheikh Lotf Allah Mosque and Jame Mosque.
    The great mosques of Khorasan, Isfahan, and Tabriz each used local geometry, local materials, and local building methods to express in their own ways the order, harmony, and unity of Islamic architecture. And thus when the major monuments of Islamic Persian architecture are examined, they reveal complex geometrical relationships, a studied hierarchy of form and ornament, and great depths of symbolic meaning.

  6. Atashgah, a Zoroastrian fire temple is dramatically set atop a rock on the outskirts of Esfahan and provides a commanding view of the city.

  7. There are nearly countless numbers of traditional teahouses (chai khaneh) throughout Iran, and each province features its own unique cultural presentation of this ancient tradition. However, there are certain traits which are common to all teahouses, especially the most visible aspects, strong chai and the ever-present ghalyan hookah.

  8. The tradition and style in the garden design of Persian gardens has influenced the design of gardens from Andalusia to India and beyond. The Taj Mahal is one of the largest Persian Garden interpretations in the world, from the era of the Mughal Empire in India.
    The Persian Garden was designed as a reflection of paradise on earth; the word "garden" itself coming from Persian roots. The special place of the garden in the Iranian heart can be seen in their architecture, in the ruins of Iran, and in their paintings.

  9. Chelow kabab is the national dish of Iran. The meal is simple, consisting of steamed, saffroned basmati or Persian rice (chelow) and kabab, of which there are several distinct Persian varieties. This dish is served throughout Iran today, but was traditionally associated with the northern part of the country.

  10. Qom is one of the holiest cities in Iran and the middle East and is entrenched in centuries of history.

  11. Qeshm Island, is Iran's largest and the Persian Gulf's largest island. Qeshm island is famous for its wide range of ecotourist attractions such as the Hara marine forests. According to environmentalists, about 1.5% of the world birds and 25% of Iran's native birds annually migrate to Hara forests which is the first national geo park.
