A mythical event took place on this day. Border line between Iran and Tooran was marked on this day by landing of an arrow shot by mythical archer “Arash” from the top of Damavand Mountain. This ancient myth promotes patriotism and sacrifice. Its association with Damavand Mountain provides a sensational reason to select this day to celebrate this remarkable landmark and symbol.
