Active ImageThe ancient Shooshtar waterfalls in Iran's southern Khuzestan Province have been registered on the UNESCO 2009 World Heritage List.

The decision was made at a World Heritage Committee meeting in the city of Seville in Spain.

The city of Shooshtar is famous for its water supply installations, which date back to the Sassanid era (224-651 CE).

The country's largest river, Karun which encircles the city has created beautiful waterfalls in different parts of Shooshtar.

Shooshtar is an ancient fortress city in the Khuzestan province in southwestern Iran. It is approximately 92 km away from Ahvaz, the centre of the province.

Iran has so far registered ten historical sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List including Persepolis, Pasargadae and Bisotun.
