Zourkhaneh Experience in Tehran

The Heroic Tales of the Capital

Zourkhaneh Experience in Tehran

Like to see how ancient Iranians worked out in a gym before the age of treadmills, loud upbeat music, and modern athletic equipment? Then a Zourkhaneh (ancient Iranian athletic club) in Tehran is the right place for you. As the center of Iranian heroism, spirituality, and physical strength, a Zourkhaneh will bring you closer to Persian culture, literature and myth. On this unique tour, you’ll lend your ears to the spiritual music of the place and watch a performance of the Pahlevani rituals (intangible UNESCO heritage as the longest-running form of heroic training). Using the cool equipment, copying the performance, and posing as a tough ancient hero will also be the fun and unforgettable slices of this distinctive tour (if possible).

What you’ll Experience:

  • Observing Zourkhaneh rituals and courtesies
  • Watching traditional sportive performances
  • Learning about Zourkhaneh equipment and how to use them
  • Listening to Zourkhaneh music and songs of epic, legend and spirituality
  • Maybe stepping into the Gowd (the exercise area) and experiencing the traditional heroic exercise
