Bam is a garden city famous for its gigantic mud-brick complex, Arg-e Bam. Also, the Mazafati dates of Bam are world-famous, and its citrus fruits are in great demand in Iran.
This green miracle, next to the hottest desert in the world, is the result of the complex system of Qanat, the ancient Iranian innovation. Qanats flow inside the city’s body like life vessels.
In 2004, this city was registered with the title of Bam and its cultural landscape in the World Heritage Organization as the first and only city of Iran, whose entire area was registered as a UNESCO world heritage site. The cultural landscape of Bam is a living museum where the interaction between humans and the surrounding natural environment can be seen. A way that has remained since more than 2000 years ago.
