Head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization congratulated the inscription of the Sassanid Archaeological Landscape of Fars Province in the list of World Heritage Sites, referring to it as "a remarkable success that was achieved through hard effort."
"Despite the tense political atmosphere dominating the meeting, Iran managed to convince the majority of member states to vote for the site's registration," he was quoted as saying by ISNA. 
The ensemble of three ancient Iranian cities was granted the global status by UNESCO on Saturday during the 42nd World Heritage Committee Session in Bahrain to represent Iran's 23rd and Fars Province's fourth site on the coveted list. 
"The dossier was prepared by a team of archeologists, cameramen, documentary producers and scholars after three years of study and research," Mounesan said.
