Taghipour, the director of cultural heritage, tourism, and handicrafts of Shahr-e Rey, also spoke about preserving this Qajar Rock Relief of Cheshmeh Ali plan.
A few months later, in a meeting of the Article Five Commission of the city of Tehran, chaired by Pirooz Hanachi, the mayor of Tehran, a strategic plan for the restoration and improvement of the Rock Relief of Cheshmeh Ali in Shahr-e Rey was approved.
The lithograph of Fath Ali Shah was made by order of this Qajar king on the wall of this historical complex of Shahr-e Rey. On the mentioned engraved relief, Fath Ali Shah sits on a throne resembling a peacock throne, and his 16 sons are standing around him. This place has a history of eight thousand years and has been an important center of the city of Rey, but it has not been protected as it should be and has been threatened every time.
