Iran is a vast country, and due to its various natural features and climate diversity, and having eight thousand years of magnificent history and civilization, it is prepared to attract tourists in all areas of tourism.
The UNESCO World Heritage Convention adopted as an international treaty in 1972.
Its theme is to preserve the natural and cultural heritage such as forests, mountains, lakes, deserts, monuments, buildings, towns, and so on. Maintaining places on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list is a duty of all humanity, regardless of race, religion or nationality. 
Iran joined it three years after the ratification of the UNESCO Convention, and registered the World Heritage of Tchaghazanbil. 
So far, 23 places from Iran have been registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Many other places from Iran are candidates for registration in the UNESCO list. 
This high capability to register Iran's places in UNESCO, on the other hand, restricts the registration of just one location from each country in UNESCO in each year, has caused some of Iran's neighbors to register the intangible heritage of Iran without permission from Iran.
