TEHRAN – During Noruz holidays (March 20-April 1), some 1.845 million tourists paid visit to 19 historic sites in Iran registered on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage.

Persepolis, the ancient capital of the Achaemenid Empire (550–330 BC), was the most-visited place during Noruz holidays. Gonbad-e Qabus, a 1006-AD decagon baked-brick-built tower in northern Golestan Province, was at the bottom of the list.

The Iran’s UNESCO-registered sites earned over 177 thousand dollars by visitors during Noruz, the Mehr news agency reported on Thursday.

Bam citadel, Shiraz’s Eram Garden, Tehran’s Golestan Palace, Shiraz’s Pasargadae, Isfahan’s Chehel Sotun Garden, Kermanshah's Bistoun, Susa, and Zanjan's Soltanieh dome are amongst Iran’s UNESCO-registered sites.
