Studies on about two thousand pieces of pottery collected from the Fire Temple of Isfahan showed that this area has been used and exploited from historical times to the early Islamic centuries.
According to ISNA, quoting the public relations of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Research Institute, Hadi Al-Hayari, the head of the archeological delegation of Fire Temple of Isfahan, said:
“At first, microtopographic mapping and documenting the site, were done with the help of UAVs in the fire temple.”
After topography, we determined the spatial architectural division of the Fire Temple of Isfahan and the exact plan of the building.
He added: “In this documentary, in addition to creating a platform for further archaeological research, a better understanding of the architectural plan of the building has been made so that a more accurate comment can be made about its function.”
He continued: “In the second phase of the research, a comprehensive methodological archeological study was conducted based on the map prepared in the Fire Temple of Isfahan. After networking the area, the data of each network were collected separately and studied.”
The head of the archeological board said: “According to the studies that were done in the initial stage on about two thousand pieces of collected pottery, this site has been used and exploited from the historical period to the early Islamic centuries.”
He reminded us that the upcoming archeological study would determine the date and the use of this important building in the west of Isfahan.
Al-Hayari said: “In history, reports, and travelogues, many descriptions have been made about the Fire Temple of Isfahan, located on the west side of the city and the north coast of Zayandehrud, but despite the importance of this area, no methodological archaeological study has been done and most studies are limited.” Restoration works have been carried out on the building.
