Panel abstract:
 
Qanats and their Cultural Landscape:  Brand of Tourism in Bam
 
This panel examines the two elements of qanat and tourism as well as the relationship between them, with a focus on Bam region. Qanat is an indigenous technique to extract groundwater, and is in fact made up of an almost horizontal tunnel with a very gentle slope along with some access wells in order to drain groundwater out. Qanat is a genius technology which has made it possible for humans to exist and flourish in such a dry environment. This panel suggests adding new functions to the existing qanats in Bam in order to better justify their existence and guarantee their preservation. One of these functions is tourism in qanat. In other words, tourism and its revenues can give rise to more motivation for maintaining qanats. On the other hand, qanat as a new tourism attraction can help develop the tourism sector in Bam, and become a brand for tourism in this area. Bam is a city whose social and civil evolution is deeply indebted to qanats, so urban tourism and qanat tourism are interwoven in this region. In Bam, qanat system enjoys many makings which can be deployed in tourism sector. As a result the most outstanding potentials of qanats consist in their economic and cultural potentials and also their systematic interaction with other urban and rural elements and eventually relatively easy access to them.
