The head of Iran’s Environmental Organization, acknowledged that, since three decades ago, many of the regime’s officials, realized that the water policy is not coherent and strict in Iran, however, they did not do anything at all.
Isa Kalantari stated, “The silence of experts about the implementation of wrong water policies has caused the country to go bankrupt in the water sector. Meanwhile, the Golestan Palace of Tehran has faced water scarcity and there is no water ponds, fountains, and greeneries in the area, according to the news. This disaster can make the palace like a big desert.”
As ISNA News reported, the water scarcity in some parts of Iran has caused the complete dryness of the international gardens across the country. The head of the World Heritage Sites in Iran, Masoud Nosrati in response to the question about the reason of water shortage stated, “By building a metro station is 15-Khordad Street of Tehran the wells of the Palace have dried out. Nevertheless, nobody considers the issue. The only thing that pops into their mind is to receive the water subsidies from the Central Bank of Iran. The Golestan Palace is suffering water scarcity and the whole monument will turn into a desert soon. This is a disaster.”
It is noteworthy that the Golestan Palace is the former royal Qajar dynasty’s complex in Iran’s capital city, Tehran, which is one of the oldest historic monuments in the city of Tehran, and of world heritage status, the Golestan Palace belongs to a group of royal buildings that were once enclosed within the mud-thatched walls of Tehran’s Arg (“citadel”). It consists of gardens, royal buildings, and collections of Iranian crafts and European presents from the 18th and 19th centuries.
