Origin of Polo hosts tournament + photos

Tehran hosts tournament of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani Polo Cup.

Tehran has hosted the tournament of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani Polo Cup on Friday.

Polo (Chogan) is a sporting team game with horses. It was considered an aristocratic game and held in a separate field, on specially trained horses.

The current form of the game originated in ancient Iran in the middle of the first millennium A.D., and was a Persian national sport played extensively by the nobility.

UNESCO has recognized the team sport as an intangible cultural heritage of Iran.
