NEWS 9: Beyhaqi mausoleum to undergo urgent restoration

The mausoleum of Beyhaqi, Iranian polymath, in the northeastern province of Khorasan Razavi will undergo urgent rehabilitation works, provincial tourism chief has said. The eastern parts of the mausoleum, which have been damaged by heavy rains over the past two years, need urgent restoration, which will be done in the near future, CHTN quoted Mohsen Barabadi as saying on Monday.

The restoration project, which aims at repairing and strengthening the monument, needs 2 billion rials (some $50,000) budget, he added. The mausoleum, which is located in the city of Sheshtamad, in Sabzevar county, was built in 1974. Abu al-Hassan Beyhaqi, also known as Ibn Fondoq was a 12th century Iranian scientist and literatus. He authored over 70 works ranging from Arabic grammar to astrology to philology.
