      Zoroastrians from around the world have been holding their annual pilgrimage to a mountain shrine in central Iran. The shrine, called Pir-e-sabz or Chak-Chak, is located about 6-hundred kilometers southeast of the capital Tehran. This is one of the most significant gatherings for the followers of the ancient belief. During this event, Zoroastrians get together in Iran's Yazd Province to honor their heroine Nikbanou. Legend has it that Nikbanou sought shelter in the mountains while fleeing the Arab invasion of Persia in the seventh century. Followers gather behind priests dressed fully in white to symbolize purity. Zoroastrians then repeat words from their sacred book known as the Avesta, while holding up their hands.

                Iran’s largest saltwater lake has shrunk to less than 20 percent of its original size and experts are looking for ways to stop it from disappearing. Experts believe that Lake Urumiyeh is shrinking due to climate change, expanded irrigation for surrounding farmlands and the construction of dams on feeder rivers. The world's third largest salt lake-- famous in the past as a tourist spot, could disappear completely within two years, unless prompt action is taken. The Iranian government has promised to save the lake from disappearing. Experts from Iran and around the world have come together to discuss the best options available to reverse the disastrous trend. Raising public awareness, encouraging farmers to abandon wasteful irrigation practices from sources feeding the lake and growing crops that consume less water are among plans pursued by the government to help stop the lake from drying up.
