MAHALLAT, Apr. 20 (MNA) – Every year in late winter and early spring, the local people and farmers of Nimvar, near Mahallat in central Iran, perform the thousands-year-old ‘Shovel Turning’ ceremony to cherish the gift of precipitation and thank Anahita, the ancient goddess of water. Turning the shovel symbolizes the joint effort and empathy among the people living together in a community.
