Borj (or Al-borj)
Borj (Or Al-Borj)
is the mythic world-mountain of the ancient Persians, from which all mundane existence took its rise and the stars leaped into their orbits. It is the symbol of creation, and is affirmed to be the navel of the world, the mountain of mountains. It is considered the centre from which have come prophets and lawgivers, and the religious dogmas and liturgic rites of the ancient Persians.
