Alamut universal registry case one step forward
Qazvin, Director General of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, the branch in Qazvin Province, says Alamut's historic and natural landscape registration case in the presence of a French delegation for a 3D image of the region develops one step forward.
Mohammad Ali Hazratiha said in an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Sunday that the delegation comprises an 11-member French team of specialists who has participated, based on a contract signed in the past and coordinated by the relevant agencies in the region.
He stated that the delegation is in the process of documenting the universal Alamut registration case in the region, and they carry aerial and 3D imaging of the regional sights and monuments, which are part of UNESCO's requirements for recording works.
Director General of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, Qazvin Province branch, arguing that the registration of historical and natural monuments in the UNESCO is subject to the rules and requirements that must be observed and enforced, said the 3D images produced by this delegation will form part of the documentation for submission to the UNESCO.
Hazratiha added, 'We hope that Alamut's global registration processes will be implemented as soon as possible, with the support of provincial authorities and the removal of the obstacles, and will be able to send the UNESCO for approval.'
He stated that Qazvin deserved to have at least four sets of records at the UNESCO, adding, 'Unfortunately, despite the presence of many historical and natural attractions and indicators for various reasons, there is still no record of the province at the UNESCO, and this issue has damaged the tourism industry in Qazvin Province.'
