City History

Tabriz is one of the historic cities of Iran. According to archaeological explorations, it dates back to Parthian and Sassanid periods. Tabriz has faced numerous ups and downs throughout history and has been destroyed and rebuilt several times by earthquakes. The most important document of history that emphasizes the great importance of Tabriz and the high profile of its history is its location on the road of silk, which for centuries connects the two sides of the east and west of the world. It is said that the current city of Tabriz is based on the ruins of the city of Toujerg (one of the most important cities of Iran during the Parthian rule), a narrative that has little historical validity but is very common among folk tales. As in the book of prestigious Iranian history (published by the University of Cambridge), the construction of the city of Tabriz was first laid down in the Sassanid period, and the city at that time was named. They say Tabriz was destroyed in the 4th century and was a small village that was not given special attention during the Arab invasion and the entry of Islam into Iran. After the presence of Arabs in Iran, a man named "Awad" from the tribe "Azdeh" (including the famous tribes of Yemen) takes Tabriz's rule during the Abbasid caliphate. His son, Wajna, built mansions in this city and surrounds the wall, laying the foundations of beautiful Tabriz. Tabriz begins its growth from the middle of the third decade of the Hijri, and its size and significance are added. After this, for four hundred years, the "Rawdian" family ruled the city and provided it with great opportunities.

There is little information about Tabriz in the Seljuk period, and there are not many references to it in the historical texts. In the time of the rule of the Ghaznavids dynasty in Iran and the rule of Als Arslan, Tabriz will forever be the center of Azerbaijan, and this title will remain forever for the city. At the beginning of the 7th century AH, the Mughals invaded Tabriz twice and dominated by the tribute of the people. But when the Ilkhan regime comes to Iran, Tabriz is at its peak and has gained the pride of the Iranian capital for many years. Ilkhans who ruled over the territory of Nepal to Central Asia initially chose Maragheh and then Tabriz for their capital. Then, in the Timurid period, the Qaraqoyunlu, Agh Qoyunlu and early Safavid dynasty, Tabriz remains the capital and center of the monarchy. But the proximity of this city to the borders of the Ottoman government and the fear of the attacks of this sovereignty, a capital from Tabriz, is taken to Qazvin.

After Qajar rule over Iran and coronation of Aqam Mohammad Khan as the king of this land, Tabriz is selected as the royal town and the future kings of Iran are being educated in this city. In the Qajar period, Tabriz was twice attacked by the Russians and occupied a long time by the Russians. But perhaps the biggest and most important role of Tabriz in contemporary history of Iran comes from the great work of the people of this city during the constitutional era, with such people as Sattar Khan, Bagherkhan and Shaikh al-Islam, along with thousands of devoted women and men, with the help of Iran and Iran's call for freedom of expression. They bring about the victory of this movement.

But the performances of the people of Tabriz do not end here, and the people of this city, by participating in many struggles and freedom, pave the way for the victory of the Islamic Revolution. Meanwhile, the date of February 29, 1979 is very much celebrated in Tabrizi and it is very important in their collective memories. The people of the city come to the streets to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the dead on December 19, 1356 in Qom, and they are involved with the Pahlavi regime's activists. This move by the people of Tabriz gives fresh impetus to the veins of the revolutionary people of Iran and adds to the speed of the victory of the revolution.

The name of Tabriz's name

There have been many speculations and hypotheses about the reason for naming Tabriz. Some of the most important names that have been derived from Tabriz are the names of "Torres", "Touraine", "Tabriz" and "Tori".

As the Iranianologist Vladimir Minorsky stated in his research, Muhammad Hamoi reports that he owns the book of Mojtaba al-Baladan, when he (Tabas) visited Tabriz, the people used the term Tabriz to name their city. Have. According to him, the pronunciation of Tabriz with the Arabs "-" belonged to the ancient Azerbaijani dialect of the old, which is related to the Persian dialects of the Caspian Sea and has that language. Or the pronunciation of Tabriz is the main name of this city about the current (in Arabic). On the other hand, the model of the name of the city of Tabriz during the Armenian period shows that the word is derived from the word Tyrges (Pahlavi language). As a result of these analyzes, Minursky concludes that the root of the name of the city dates back to the Sassanian period, or even earlier, the time of the Parthian rule.

Other studies carried out in the area of Tabriz's name include the work of Mostafa Momeni in the Islamic Encyclopedia. Mr. Momeni said in his article that the native inhabitants of Azerbaijan were called Tabriz, Tori (the spring or the river), and until recently villagers around Tabriz also called the city. In ancient writings (for example, Abu al-Fadda), the name of Tabriz has come in the form of joy, and still in the Kurdish and Tati languages, the names "Turez" and "Tori" are used to name this city.

George Curzon, in his study, concluded that Tabriz is an Aryan word and has been derived from the words "fever" meaning "hot and cold" and "rose and thistle". He sees the reason for this naming as the presence of hot springs in the vicinity of the city. Wilhelm Eilser also partly agrees with the reason for this naming, and the meaning of combining the two words "Fever" and "Rose" is called "hot water". He states that fever or spit gives warmth, and that the meaning of the flow of springs has come.

Of course, this is only a few examples of the studies done on Tabriz province, and the research work in this regard is not over, but not all of them are in the interest of this article.
