Destruction of the relief sculpture of Bahram II of the Sasanian era with explosives

The crown of Bahram II of the Sasanian era in the relief sculpture of Sarab Bahram village, located three kilometers from Nurabad-e Mamasani, which is one of the important historical relief sculptures in Iran, has been destroyed with explosives.

The Iran Watch Site has announced that this relief sculpture, which was registered nationally in 1315, was likely damaged on Thursday night, as signs of impact from explosives or incendiary materials have been observed on this prominent relief.

Cultural heritage experts are demanding a swift restoration of this artifact.

Hossein Faizi, a Ph.D. in archaeology and a researcher of the Sasanian period, has stated that the relief of Bahram II is one of the most important relief sculptures in Iran, facing many threats, and no adequate protective measures are being taken in line with the significance of this sculpture.

In the early morning of the 14th of Farvardin, incendiary materials were also thrown into the area of the tomb of Esther and Mordechai in Hamadan.

The tomb of Esther and Mordechai is a Jewish shrine located in the center of the city of Hamadan, listed in Iran’s national heritage sites.
