Abstract: 

This article is in search of the role of mural paintings and their effectiveness in the process of registration of immovable world heritage. In this article, the immovable world heritage can be either the architectural structure containing the mural painting or the mural painting which has been registered independently. Value position of mural paintings, belonging to any style or manner, determines the importance of this topic. Since mural paintings which have had a fundamental role in the world heritage nomination and gaining its privilege are not rare, in this research which has a developmental approach, these cases are investigated by contemplating on their registration files via qualitative and quantitative analysis (descriptive and comparative) of approaches used by the world heritage committee in non-Iranian and Iranian samples. Regarding this, in Iranian samples we encounter with murals which are as significant as registered samples in the world heritage due to their special values; therefore, they can play an essential role in the registration process of Iranian buildings in the world heritage list if certain conditions are fulfilled by officials. Although mural painting should be considered as an inseparable component of an architectural structure, the mural itself as a monumental work and potential valuing factor can obtain significance to the extent that not only bears the value load of an architectural structure but also becomes an independent work for registration as an immovable work in the list of the world heritage. Thus, in a modern approach for valuing Persian mural paintings 9 value factors are introduced and interpreted.
