ICHHTO follows up world registration of Kandovan village

Tabriz, E. Azarbaijan, May 10, IRNA – Vice-President and Head of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts, and Tourism Organization Masoud Soltani-Far expressed hope that bottlenecks on the way of world registration of historical Kandovan Village will be removed.

Speaking in the course of his visit to Kandovan tourism village, he said placement of this village in the list of UNESCO world registration candidates necessitates requirements which are being followed up.

Stressing that different problems of the village should be removed quickly, Soltani-Far noted that one of the main challenges in the world registration file is irregular constructions which had been made in previous years and have damaged the historical texture of the village.

He said providing facilities for some of the village dwellers which have unauthorized housings are among priorities of his organization in Kandovan village, adding that with the removal of those households to nearby villages or cities, the problems will be setled as well.

Kandoval Village is one of the three rock villages in the world. It is the central part of Osku city and has been registered in the list of national monuments for its specific architectural style.
