Zoorkhaneh | The Iranian Traditional gymnasium, Iran

Zoorkhaneh is the Iranian traditional gymnasium in which the Iranian national sport, called "Pahlevani sport" 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. A few researches show that its birth dates back to more than 700 years ago, when the land of Persia was invaded by Mongolians and Iranian patriot guys gathered together and shaped secret groups in order to fight against the occupiers.
