Tehran (IP) - Secretary-General of UNESCO stated that the process of global registration of Uramam has started five years ago and is going through its final steps.

Iran PressIran News: On the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony of Uraman photo exhibition, Hojatollah Ayoubi in an exclusive interview with Iran Press said that the results of the efforts to register Uraman globally will be released soon.

Ayoubi went on to say that Uraman is a huge area, and all cultures, celebrations, and nature of these areas will be registered together.

"Since every country is able to register only one case in the World List every year so cultural heritage organization decided to register a tourist hub instead of a building," the official added.

Ayoubi concluded that Global registration leads to the preservation and attracting tourists.

Uramanat as a tourist hub includes 300 villages. The area itself is 100,000 km and the area around it is 300,000 km, which has a total area of 400,000 km and is spread in the two provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan in western Iran.
