Photos: Spring blossoms in Sari-Iran

Sari is the provincial capital of Mazandaran, located in the north of Iran on beautiful southern coast of Caspian (Mazandaran) Sea. Sari was founded during the Sasanid period (ad 224–651).

Native people of Sari have a folklore that the city was populated when Smith Kaveh (native of this city) revolted against the tyranny of Zahak.

Zoroastrians from Sari who migrated to India in the 10th Century founded there a city which they named “Navu Sari” (English: “New Sari”), a name which was by now shortened to Navsari; the town is still a center of the Zoroastrian Parsi community of India.
