[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]Iran became a member of World Heritage list three years after its inauguration. However, it was in 1979 that Iranian registered their first national heritages in the list. Choqazanbil, Persepolis and Naqsh-e Jahan Square were the three mentioned heritages. With the 1979 revolution and the Iran-Iraq war that followed, Iranian did not register any other monuments until 2003. In 2003, however, with the registration of Takht-e Soleyman, Iranian were back in the scene. Now, Iran has 22 Monumental World Heritage, 2 Natural World Heritage, 14 Intangible Cultural Heritage, 4 Creative Cities, 10 Memory of the World Register, 13 Bisphere Reserves, and 1 Geopark (Qeshm Geopark). Here is the complete list of these heritages with the year they have been registered.
