Mohammad Reza Moini, Director of Cultural Heritage Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO) in Kazerun said, “During the UNESCO World Heritage Committee sessions in Bahrain, Sassanid archaeological landscape of Fars region was inscribed on the World Heritage List. So much effort has been made over the years for this inscription and from now on this archaeological landscape is recognized along other famous historical sites in our country.” Mosayyeb Amiri who is the genral manager of ICHHTO office in Fars province announced that with the global inscription of Sassanid archaeological landscape of Fars region as the 23rd historical site in our country, the number of historical sites in Fars province that are inscribed as world heritage sites increased to five.
Sassanid archaeological landscape of Fars region are situated in three parts of Fars province with 200 km in extent including places such as the Sassanid Palace at Sarvestan, Firuzabad complex (Shahregoor, a monument named Fire Temple and Palace of Ardeshir) and a complex
of Sassanid’s works in Bishapur, Kazerun (namely the ancient city of Bishapur, Tange Chogan reliefs and Shapur cave). The 42nd session of UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee is taking place in Manama, Bahrain and it will review the given files from the states parties in UNESCO
until July 4th. It was at this session that the Sassanid case file from Iran was reviewed and it was globally inscribed at last. However, prior to the session the chance of Iran in
winning this case seemed to be so low and Mohammad
Hasan Taliban, who is the deputy of ICHHTO, had pointed
out to the probability of an opposition in this case due to
many changes in the states parties of World Heritage Committee and the unfamiliarity to the new parties before his departure to Bahrain, which was the destination of UNESCO’s meeting.
The representatives from each of the states parties of the committee reviewed the case related to Iran. Some accepted the ICOMUS problems related to this case file as important and some others empasized the historical period as significant. The most objections made by the representatives were about the management planning of this file. The representative of Azarbaijan in this session spoke about the efficacy of Sassanid architecture on other historical eras.
Also the Tunisian representative said, “We are happy that this file case was acknowledged since its empty place in UNESCO’s World Heritage List was noticeable. We confirm the amendment to this file and we ask Iran to give us more details so that we can study it thoroughly.”
The genral manager of ICHHTO office in Fars province, Mosayyeb Amiri stated that the dispatched UNESCO’s council of assessment for inscribing the Sassanid archaeological landscape of Fars region were compounded of two UNESCO’s senior experts and two Italian and German archaeologists who visited the Sassanid part. The official with reference to the suggestion for temporary inscription of the Sassanid archaeological landscape of Fars region at UNESCO in 1385 declared that it was supposed to inscribe each and every sites separately, but because of the limitation of two worldwide inscription per year it was decided that 5 of the Sassanid sites ought to be inscribed in terms of archaeological scenes.
During the meeting, many countries from China to Australia, European countries such as Spain and countries in Iran’s neighburhood like Azarbaijan and Bahrain were present and concurred the subject of concern. Before this event, 4 historical places including Pasargadae, the remains of Pasargadae’s Gardens, Eram Garden and Persepolis in Fars province had been inscribed globally.
Nowadays, Fars owns the largest number Iran’s recordings in UNESCO.
