Achaemenid Empire

Achaemenid Empire

The Achaemenid Empire (/əˈkiːmənɪd/; Old Persian: Haxāmanišiyā; c. 550–330 BCE), or First Persian Empire, was an empire in Western and Central Asia, founded in the 6th century BCE by Cyrus the Great. The dynasty draws its name from king Achaemenes, who ruled Persis between 705 BCE and 675 BC. The empire expanded to eventually rule over significant portions of the ancient world, which at around 500 BC stretched from the Indus Valley in the east to Thrace and Macedon on the northeastern border of Greece. The Achaemenid Empire would eventually control Egypt as well. It was ruled by a series of monarchs who unified its disparate tribes and nationalities by constructing a complex network of roads. By the 600s BC, the Persians (Parsa) had settled in the southwest Iranian plateau, bounded on the west by the Tigris River and on the south by the Persian Gulf; this region came to be their heartland. It was from this region that Cyrus the Great would advance to defeat the Kingdom of Media, the Kingdom of Lydia, and the Babylonian Empire, to form the Achaemenid Empire. [(img)|1030116077121001B]

Iranian cuisine

Iranian cuisine

Iranian cuisine and Persian cuisine include the traditional and modern styles of cooking from Persia and Iran. Situated in the Middle East, the Iranian culinary style has historically both influenced and been influenced by Iran`s neighbouring regions at various stages throughout its history. Specifically, these have been mutual culinary influences to and from Mesopotamian cuisine, Anatolian cuisine, Caucasian cuisine, Indian cuisine, and Central Asian cuisine.The cuisine of Turkey is heavily influenced by that of Iran, due to geographical proximity, ethnic relations, and shared empires such as the Seljuks. Persian cuisine also influenced that of Afghanistan, and has spread into all but the southernmost parts of India during the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire (see Mughlai cuisine). It also traveled west to influence the cuisines of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia and thence into the cuisines of Russia and the Soviet Union. Many foods famously associated with Middle Eastern, and indeed World cuisine have their origins in Iran, such as kebab and ice cream, and cookies. [(img)|1030119487121001B] Fresh green herbs are frequently used along with fruits such as plums, pomegranates, quince, prunes, apricots, and raisins. Typical Persian main dishes are combination of rice with meat, lamb, chicken, or fish and some onion, vegetables, nuts, and herbs. To achieve a balanced taste, characteristic Persian flavorings such as saffron, dried limes, cinnamon, and parsley are mixed delicately and used in some special dishes.

Iranian Money

Iranian Money

The rial (ISO 4217 code IRR) is the currency of Iran. It is subdivided into 100 dinar but, because of the very low current value of the rial, no fraction of the rial is used in accounting. When talking money in Iran you may hear the term “Toman”. The toman is an old term but is no longer an official currency. Although the "Toman" is no longer an official unit of Iranian currency, Iranians commonly express amounts of money and prices of goods in "Tomans." For this purpose, one "Toman" equals 10 rials. Despite this usage, amounts of money and prices of goods are virtually always written in rials. For example, the price sign in a store would state the price in rials, e.g., "20000 Rials," even though the salesman, if asked, would say the cost "2000 tomans" or simply 2000. There is no official symbol for the currency but the Iranian standard ISIRI 820 defined a symbol for use on typewriters (mentioning that it is an invention of the standards committee itself) and the two Iranian standards ISIRI 2900 and ISIRI 3342 define a character code to be used for it.

Persian Carpet

Persian Carpet

Persian art is best known in the West for its carpets. Europeans had their first encounter with Persian rugs by at least the 15th century and the initial impression has never changed; in carpet weaving Iran is considered to have no equal. No researcher can define the exact beginning date of carpet weaving in Iran. The earliest-known Iranian carpet, now named Pazyrik after the archaeological site in Siberia where it was exhumed from the frozen tombs of Scythian chiefs, dates from about 500 B.C. The value of Iranian carpets is determined to a large extent by their patterns. Before weaving a carpet, a professional weaver usually designs the patterns and makes a paper model, representing one quarter of the carpets surface; nomads usually improvise while weaving. The carpet consists of the main portion and the margins; the margins, in turn may be divided into three sections. There is an astonishing variety of patterns in Iranian carpets. Their elaborate composition and minute details reflect a poetic vision of the world and a belief in the efficacy of symbols. Of all the themes which occupy the mind of a Persian carpet designer, the garden is particularly important. Some historians report that when the Muslim Arabs conquered Persian capital “Ctesiphon” in 637, among the fabulous booty they carried away was a huge carpet, depicted a formal Persian garden, made for audience hall of the king’s palace; the idea of Paradise. Main present carpet weaving centers in Iran include: Qom, Isfahan, Tabriz, Kerman, Nain, Yazd, Kashan and nomadic regions like Baktiari and Qashqai.

Kerman together with Yazd and Pars (Persia) became part of the Zoroastrian group of nations after the close of the Avestan canon, that is, the time when no further additions to the Avesta were made. Kerman could very well have received Zoroastrianism via Khorasan and Siestan rather than via Pars and Yazd. After the Islamic Arab invasion of Iran, Kerman and Yazd became the two provinces that continued to maintain significant numbers of Zoroastrians and therefore Zoroastrian neighbourhoods.

Up through the 1870s, Tehran consisted of the walled “arg” (royal citadel), the roofed bazaar, and “sharestan” (where the masses resided in three main neighborhoods of “Udlajan”, “Chaleh Meydan”, and “Sangelaj”). The first development plan of Tehran in 1855 emphasized the traditional spatial structure. Architecture, however, found an eclectic expression to reflect the new lifestyle. The second major planning exercise in Tehran happened under supervision of Dar ul-Funun. The map of 1878 included new city walls, in the form of a perfect octagon with an area of 19 square kilometers, which mimicked the renaissance cities of Europe.
