Zahra Abdollahnejad, Linda Watson, Guresewak Aulakh, and Mhairi Mackie

AbstractAbstract—Nowadays, monuments are assessed and registered by UNESCO based on a series of proposed criteria. The Masjed-e Jame of Isfahan which is also called Jame mosque is one of the monuments of Iran registered by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. UNESCO considers the Jame mosque to be a unique monument because of the special materials used in its construction and its unique decoration. The nomination file about the Jame mosque of Isfahan has some deficiencies when considered in the context of the inscription criteria proposed by UNESCO. The present study, after identifying the deficiencies of the nomination file critically analyzed their weaknesses and recommends improvements. Consequently, having considered the guidelines prepared by UNESCO proposing a WHS for inscription, many opportunities for further consideration and potential additions to the documentation are presented. These would lead to the development of a reliable management plan to ensure the future of the mosque.

Index Terms—UNESCO, Nomination file, Masjid-e Jame of Isfahan, critical analysis
