The 31st Fajr International Music Festival featured musicians from all around the world. The festival is annually held in Tehran's famous Vahdat Hall. The word Vahdat means unity in Persian and you will find people and musicians uniting from all around the world to celebrate this magnificent event.

In this feature, we'll be looking at some of the stores in the capital who sell great stuff, wearable and non-wearable with classic Persian motifs. Imagine wearing a shirt with a unique design, one that reflects the Persian culture, or having a decorative object at home, that resembles a traditional theme.

Iranian-Armenians' contributions 

The history of Armenian migration to Iran goes back to thousands of years ago. Since then the Iranian-Armenian community has played an important role in the development of our country. Iranian-Armenians are one of the strongest and most active groups of Armenians in diaspora and they have made some great political, economic and cultural contributions to our society.
