Archaeologists, restorers resume work on Manujan fort

January 19, 2019

TEHRAN – Teams of archaeologists and restorers have commenced a new round of work on the ancient Manujan fort in the southeastern Kerman province.

“Archaeological research and exploration as well as restoration of towers are being pursued in a large scale,” archaeologist Alidad Soleymani said, CHTN reported.

During previous rounds of excavation, the fort yielded relics and remains dating to various Islamic eras, Soleymani said.

Manujan fort is nested on top of a smooth natural rock and in the heart of a city of the same name.

The vast and sprawling Kerman province has long been a cultural melting pot since antiquity, blending Persians with subcontinental tribe dwellers. It embraces tens of historical sites and scenic landscapes including Bazaar-e Sartasari, Jabalieh Dome, Ganjali Khan Bathhouse, Malek Jameh Mosque and Shahdad Desert to name a few.
