Zourkhaneh Pahlevan Shahverdi

a place full of strength spells

Zourkhaneh (a traditional system of athletics originally used to train warriors in Iran and adjacent lands, literally “the house of strength) and conventional sports have been forgotten and we should appreciate the value of places such as Shahverdi’s. In ancient times such places were famous for ‘Bastani Kari’ (exercises for muscle strength, literally “work of ancient”). People had a special sense of respect for those champions and if facing any problem, champions were their first helpers.
