TEHRAN -- Tehran’s Malek Museum and Library will be displaying a collection of Persian historical calendars in an exhibition, which will open tomorrow.
Different types of historical calendars including agricultural calendars, fishing calendars, and local calendars are among the items to go on show in the exhibit, the museum announced in a press release on Sunday.
Entitled “Circulation of Time”, the exhibit helps visitors become more acquainted with Persian calendars and their details, and become more familiar with different matters such as Noruz (the Iranian New Year) calculations, and solar or lunar eclipses
The exhibit will be running until late April.
The Malek Museum and Library is located in downtown Tehran at Mashq Square, which is home to several Qajar era monuments. The building and almost all its artifacts were donated by the Qajar era tradesman Hossein Malek, to the guardianship of the shrine of Imam Reza (AS) to be converted into a museum and library.
