TEHRAN, Dec. 23 (MNA) – An Iranian art and culture exhibition opened Friday night at the National Library of Republic of Kazakhstan in the Astana city.

 

Scores of Kazakh artists, literati, and students attended the opening ceremony of the event which runs until Jan. 10, 2007.

 

The exhibition was previously held in the Kazakh cities of Turkestan, Chimkent, Taraz, and Almaty. 

 

According to a report of Iran’s Cultural Office in Kazakhstan, the show aims to draw Kazakh people’s interest and attention toward Iranian culture and art.

 

“The mutual cultural influence of Iran and Turan doubtlessly contributed to the development of not only architecture, but also literature and philosophy in the Central Asia and the Middle East,” reads a part of the report.  

 

Turan Plain was extensive lowland in southwestern Kazakhstan and northwestern Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.

 

It was bounded by the Saryarqa (Kazakh uplands) in the north, the outliers of the Tien Shan, Pamir, and Alay mountains in the east, the Kopet-Dag Range in the south, and the Caspian Sea in the west.
