Chahargah in Persian classical music

Chahargah could be associated with the color yellow or maybe white. It is best played in the morning from six to eight o'clock and might be associated with steam. The mystic connotation of Chahrgah is tariqat (the path). This mode is full of excitement and action which is mainly caused by the contrast of the intervals between the notes in the Chahargah scale. The festive and heroic nature of Chahargah makes it perfect for signing the national epic, Ferdowsi's Shahnameh

which is used by gymnasts of the Zur-Khaneh to accompany their excersizes.
