The 25th of Farvardin of the Iranian calendar is commemorated every year as the Day of the famous 13th century Persian poet, Farid ud-Din Attar Neishaburi, who was killed by the Mongol marauders of Genghis Khan during their barbaric invasion of Khorasan and the massacre of, often entire populations, of towns and cities.
