“Falak-ol-Aflak Stands Pretty Steady and is in Good Condition”

Falak-ol-Aflak Castle, the unmissable eight-towered monument dominates Khorramabad, the capital of Lorestan province, “stands pretty steady and is in good condition,” a cultural heritage official said.

According to an ISCA report, “Regarding scientific researches and technical inspections, the fortress is not confronting with a new problem and this valuable monument is in a state of sustainability,” said Farhad Azizi who presides over the office of World Heritage Affairs at the Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization.

The official rejected reports on social networks about the destruction of Falak-ol-Aflak as baseless and non-technical.

In the past couple of years ago, the historic castle was faced with lots of problems that resolved in close cooperation of provincial officials by the means of both essential and urgent repair projects, he explained.

Falak ol-Aflak castle is amongst the most important structures built during the Sassanid era. The Khorramabad River runs past the eastern and south-western side of the Falak-ol-Aflak hill providing the fortress with an element of natural protection.

The castle is managed by the Iran Cultural Heritage Organization as a protected site. At present, Falak-ol-Aflak is on the Tentative List of UNESCO's World Heritage sites as an example of Persian Architecture.
