Where is SAVEH?

Shahsavan Tribe
SAVEH
SAVEH is a city 80 km(50 miles) south of TEHRAN and is one of many places where the SHASAVAN tribe resides. The majority of the SHASAVAN tribe lives in northwest IRAN near the city of ARDABIL and DASHTEH MOGHAN. Small groups of SHASAVAN, however, moved to central IRAN near SAVEH, KARMSAR, and VARAMIN.

In Farsi (official language of IRAN) SHAHSAVAN means "For those who love the Shah"-a 17th century title bestowed on warriors from these tribes who were defending Persia's northern border. Most of their weavings consist of functional pieces such as saddle bags, mafrashes and animal trappings. Their textiles frequently use the Soumak and Kilim weaves.

 Wise Men from the East, Although he was a Christian, Hossein Behzad was respected by Muslims and Christians alike, for, in his work, he brought together the best artistic traditions of Persia's past and his own contemporary experience of Christian faith.This essay focuses on the art from the Christian period in Behzad's life.

According to Iranian tradition, the tombs of the Magi who visited the infant Jesus are located in the ruins of SAVEH, IRAN.
"There were only two Persian Magi here: just as there were evidently only two buried at Saveh, only two portrayed on the enigmatic tiles, only two in the Mandaean account, and only two depicted in one of the oldest catacombs under Rome." Paul William Roberts, Journey of the Magi (1995) p. 342.
