Streets of Iranian Village Named after Literary Masterpieces

A village in west-central Iran has gained fame not only for its pleasant weather, but also for its people, who love reading and doing cultural activities.

The Tajabad Sofla (Rasoolabad) village is located in the town of Bahar in Hamadan province. The village lies near the road from Hamadan to Kermanshah.

A library there with some 6,000 volumes of books together with villagers’ enthusiasm for reading prompted the idea of naming alleys and passageways in the village after books written by globally recognized figures. The idea was warmly welcomed by locals, and 30 alleys and passageways in the village were named after prominent figures.

The names were chosen based on the environment of the village as well as people’s vote.

What follows are IRNA’s photos of the street and alley signs:
