    Meaning of the word "Akhshigan"

    In Ancient Persia, four "sacred" elements of Water, Fire, Earth and Air were called four Akhshig (element) or Akhshigan. About two centuries before Aristotle, the Persian philosopher Zoroaster described these four elements as "sacred," i.e., essential for the survival of all living beings and therefore should be respected and kept free from any contamination.

    We have selected the word "Akhshigan" for ourselves, to encourage respect and love for our natural reserves while exploring and learning about our natural and urban habitat through responsible and sustainable ecotourism.
