Zoroastrian Aryan Civilization in Central Asia
By Keki R. Bhote
Since the 1970’s there has been a veritable explosion of archcological excavations in Central Asia and Iran. Many of them date back to anciant aryan times – both pre-Zoroastrian and Zoroastrian.
1. Arkaim — On the Kazakhstan and Russian border- a spectacular aryan city going back to 5000 BC.
2. Gonur – In south Turkministan – one of the 5 most ancient civilizations of the world dated around 7000 BC.
3. Tash Karim – In north Uzbekistan – that existed since Zarasthushtra’s time and flourished as a Zoroastrian kingdom up to 1300 AD.
4. Elam – In south east Iran – that was called the cradle of civilization and where writing was first invented.
These excavations and others represent a proud heritage for us Zoroastrians.
