A visit to Bam: Reconstruction continues

10/5/06 By Syma Sayyah, Tehran

I recently visited the world famous Ark-e Bam which was heavily hit by the earthquake on 26th December 2003, when centuries of glory were turned into rubble. Still this remains one of the most interesting sites in Iran.

The Iran Heritage Organization with the help of international organizations from Europe and Japan, including UNESCO, is rebuilding the Ark. One can only hope that they complete the work so that this city can once again enjoy the pleasure of being the host to many tourists and world travelers. Here I have a few pictures for you to share from my stop there
