ARIZONA PERSIAN CULTURAL CENTER
Who are Persians?
The Arizona Persian Cultural Center is thrilled to have joined the AAAA and to participate in this year’s Asian Festival.
The term Persian, refers to the language and people living mostly in Western Asia, predominantly in regions covering parts of Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Russia and Romania. Persians have history, customs, cultures and traditions dating back to 860BC.
Fun facts about Persians
Persians have contributed many things to humanity including poetry, art, science, music, architecture, agriculture, food, and one of the most precise solar calendars.
The Persian New Year starts precisely on Spring Equinox, simultaneously throughout the world. A spread (depicted above) is set up with each item representing a meaning, such as health, fertility, abundance, wealth, etc, to start the new year with good luck. This tradition has lasted thousands of years and is still adored by Persians.
While most people are familiar with Persian rugs, Persian pistachios, and Persian cats, other interesting facts about Persians contributions are: claims of over a million verses of poetry written; some of the oldest wind towers and qanat water systems in the world, and Persian gardens, which date back to 1000BC.
Over the centuries, Persians have also contributed hundred of recipes for delicious meals and desserts, most famously, Persian fluffy saffron rice and filet kabob, and of course tahdig, the simple crunchy and delicious rice. Numerous wonderful tahdig recipes can be found by simply googling the words “tahdig recipe”
We are a non-political, non-religious and non-profit organization with the goal of enriching the community by raising awareness of the Persian culture, heritage, language, history and contributions through education, music, dance, theater, art, and food.
