Zoorkhaneh is the Iranian traditional gymnasium in which the Iranian national sport, called “Pahlevani” is practiced. Pahlevani sport consists of 7 main exercises practiced using special tools which are made in the shape of ancient weapons such as sword, mace, shield & bow. The history of Pahlevani sport is not clear. It is guessed that Pahlevai sport was an exercise for military preparation. Zoorkhaneh is not only a gymnasium, but also a place to learn chivalry, manliness, forgiveness & other moral qualities. This picture is captured in 2004, from the oldest Zoorkhaneh of Tehran, called “Pouriaye vali”.
