Image Remarks: A remarkable statue of Arash Kamangir(Archer) Legendary Hero of Ancient Persia in a park in Izeh. The story of Arash has been mentioned in Avesta and three times in Shahnameh of Ferdowsi. In a war with enemy, Arash is asked to throw a bow and end the war. Clues&Views:It's very possible that the word arch is deriven from Arash the Archer. Arash Kamangir fired the specially-prepared arrow at dawn, which then traveled a great distance before finally landing and so marking the future border between the Iranians and the Aniranians. The heroic epic of Arash has already inspired many books, games and movies.
