Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, Yazd Economic Tour
In old times, Tehran was a relatively big village located between the well-known and big city of Rey and Alborz Mountains. Its name mentioned for the first time in the biography of Mohammad-Ebn-e- Hamad known as Abu Abdollah Hafez-e-Tehrani-ye- Razi born in 817. According to the existing historical resources, the village existed before the expansion of Islam and then has gained the Arabic variant name. Later in recent century, coinciding with the Constitutionalism Movement in which several changes made in literature and writing of Persian language, gradually its written form changed into Tehran with “t” used in Persian alphabet and after establishment of The Academy of Persian Language, the term of Tehran with Arabic “t” entirely abolished.
Among the cities of Iran, Isfahan is like a piece of jewelry that despite the historical fluctuations in the area has still retained its luster and glory throughout the centuries. The city is so vibrant that it seems as if it has been born today and yet it is so original that it looks as though it has always existed. The city’s rich culture and beautiful nature are in such perfect harmony that one seems to be a reflection of the other. Isfahan is an ultimate expression of the Iranian-Islamic Culture.
