ISNA / According to cultural heritage activists in Kerman, at least 10 historical houses in Kerman were destroyed last year.

Some historical spots in the bazaar, caravanserai and Yakhodan of Kerman are considered as a sign of the past of this city and are called historical houses that collapse under the load of unidentified loaders of historic building owners, from Timo house to house Qajar located in the area Malek Mosque , which did not bend under snow, rain and earthquake for more than a hundred years and was razed to the ground by its owner’s loader blade.

Now Omid Ebrahimi, a cultural heritage activist in Kerman, is concerned about the possibility of demolishing another valuable building in the city and in the arena of Bazaar Kerman and Kerman Lawyer Caravanserai informs.

He also warns about the possibility of destroying the house of one of the old goldsmiths of Kerman, who is said to be one of the first people to import gold to Kerman during the Qajar period, and says: Although this house is on the list of national monuments Unidentified and probably cultural heritage, like other destroyed monuments, is a reason for its lack of work.

“It’s still time to save this house,” he said. Referring to the historical houses destroyed during the past few years in Kerman, such as the house attributed to Timo and the house next to the Malek Mosque, which is one of the first settlements of early humans, he says: Although this house Some of them, according to the heritage, have not even been identified yet and for this reason are not registered in the list of national monuments, but some of them are in the first-class sanctuary and some of them are in the area of ​​the remaining historical context. Ebrahimi emphasizes: “After the destruction that has taken place in the city over the past few years and the experiences gained by the city authorities, the cultural heritage and even the city administration are expected to set certain criteria for saving the house.” Have old buildings so that Kerman no longer suffers from this kind of sudden and shocking destruction for the trustees of this device.

He continues: The house has reached the warning point in Kerman, now it has lost its stone pillars and a large part of it has changed and transformed, these changes can be easily seen even from the aerial map شد. P>

He goes on to say that most of the historical monuments are personal property that can not be done for them because they are not nationally registered: it seems that they have seen the best solution in this so that they can understand the historical context of Kerman. Destroy in silence and the towers rise instead, something that also happened in the clay pit, and the City Center in the middle of the historical context of our work is being completed.

This cultural activist of Kerman, however, considers one of the most important problems of historical houses that their owners intend to protect to be the high cost that the owners need to renovate their buildings, and says: Usually the loans that are paid for the renovation They have unpaid repayments, so now, the problem of the owners of these buildings, in addition to the lack of a proper mechanism for the restoration of their buildings, is to provide funding and capital for the restoration. Ebrahimi, pointing out that about 10 years ago, the historical fabric of Kerman has been eroding and this situation continues, continues: The reality of the historical fabric of Kerman today is that many of these half-ruined houses today It is rented to foreigners, and most of the abandoned aristocratic houses are in the hands of those who collect the waste and turn it into a warehouse.
