Dear All,

You will be happy to know that finally, after some years of delay, this news of Navroze being awarded the UNESCO award as an Intangible Heritage of Humanity has come through officially. It is good news.

UNESCO Parzor was a part of the team which prepared the Candidature File for the award. We worked with the Iranian Government and several other countries representing the Ministry of Culture, Indian Government for this purpose.

This news should be spread among the Zoroastrian community world wide.

Thanking you,
