An introduction about Ferdowsi and Shahnameh

In running the 12th Commemoration Day of Ferdowsi, Friends of Shahnameh relied on the help and support of many people. We are grateful to the support and assistance of each and every one of our members and friends. Thanks also to everyone who attended tour event on the 15th May 2022.

Friends of Shahnameh celebrated Ferdowsi and his Shahnameh (a literary masterpiece with universal human values) for 12 years in a row. Shahnameh was written over a millennium ago, but some of the topics discussed are still relevant today.
