ABSTRACT

This paper is an applied research and the data analysis has been conducted using qualitative and quantitative method. The approach of the study is criticism of forgetting the urban cemetery of Zahir-od-dowleh in north of Tehran aiming at revival of this cultural-historical complex. Therefore, we start the study with a survey on the way of identity revival of the main cemeteries in other countries and changing them to tourism centers. The study will be continued by a texture analysis and using SWOT strategic model. Finally, we will use an organizing approach to change the cemetery into a cultural-historical tourism complex. In this regard, the author has proposed a framework containing seven promotion and organizing goals, including promotion of natural, socio-cultural, economic, management, access, physic-spatial and strategic services, and policy making structures.
