TEHRAN -- The 1900-year-old Kerit Dam in Tabas has been registered as a national monument. It is one of the unique dams of Iran.

Kerit Dam is located at the foot of Kerit Mountain. Research indicates that this dam was first was built during the Parthian era and that it has been rebuilt three times, for the last time in 700 years ago.

A careful examination of the dam system shows the great skill of its architects and engineers. The beautiful scenery of the region has made it a tourist site.
