Iran Tourism Guide|
Posted by Oficinas_Turismo on Thursday, December 13, 2012 (17:32:41) (44913 reads)
From the 6th century BC until 1935, the country that today is Iran was known as Persia. The name, Iran, derives from an ancient term "a‐eer‐yanem va‐ee‐jo" in Avesta, the holy book of the Zoroastrians, meaning 'the land of the Aeers'.
This term refers to the plateau upon which the Indo‐Iranians, a branch of the Aryans, settled. By the passing of time, the term "Aeer" changed to "Er" and later to "Ir", and so the official name of the country during the Sassanid period (400‐600 AD) was Iranshatr or Iranshahr. "Shatr" or "Shahr" means country, and so, Iranshahr meant "the country of the Nobles".
Iran comprises of a land area of over 1.6 million Sq m (the 17th country in the world by land area).
