Abstract:   (307 Views)
In the spring of 2010, a mission lead by myself was dispatched, to archeologically survey and identify the existing ancient sites and Tepes (hills), to Mash’ūreh Strait (Gāvshomār), at a southwestern distance of 60 km from the town of Delfan in Lorestan. The mission managed its investigations in two phases: 1) at the vicinity of Cham-e Zakariyā River located at the rural district of Southern Mirbag, suburbs of town of Delfan, and 2) around Kākā Rezā River in the rural district of Firouzabad located at town of Selseleh through a condensed and exact survey. The result of survey was identification and collection of 72 ancient sites. Among these sites, only one building index was found to belong to the Islamic era, which among the local people is known as the mausoleum of Haji Baktash. The remains of architectural structures known as Haji Baktash is on a Parthian hill, in Qalayi Village District in the Firoozabad of Aleshtar, located in the Lorestan province. The original plan of the mausoleum was built with 20 × 20 ×5 cm square bricks, is circle from inside view and octagon from outside view. We plan to study the recognition of a body to deal with the remaining legible architectural space. While we know Haji Baktash was a Sufi seventh century AH who immigrated to Anatolia from Nishapur and sect Baktashi Order in Turkey was founded and developed by him. Thus was it named because of his mausoleum in Lorestan? Is this connected with the mausoleum of the Ahle Haq Sect in the northern Lorestan? The important questions were proposed by the author based on the available archaeological evidence; the present research is in this area.
