    Zoroastrianism has been called ‘ the world’s first ecological religion’ and it is an integral part of our cultural heritage. Water like Fire is sacred in our tradition and WHO standards of drinking water have been found to be maintained in the ancient Tankas of Parsi Gujarat , while the Qanat and Kariz water systems of Persia are famed for providing water across millennia.

    We at Parzor have been working on Ecology since the beginning of our UNESCO Parzor Project .

    Prof Kavas Kapadia of the School of Planning and Architecture has been our Advisor in this Water Project ; he has presented some of our findings at the World Water Conference in Kyoto, as well as at the Conference of Water and Religion at Salisbury .

    As you watch this short movie , we hope you will see the relevance of this subject to our water starved world today .

    Acknowledging our new partners, Sahapedia, in telling the world about heritage through the Internet. Credit for this brilliant video and everlasting support, to Mahatta.

    We will be delighted to share our research with all those working in the field of water management and anyone interested in knowing more about ancient wisdom relevant even today.
