World Heritage Site List


This is a list of all Unesco's designated "World Heritage Sites".

This World Heritage List is current as of December 2007 and includes 851 sites of unique value to the world.

Zabid has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Its Great Mosque occupies a prominent place in the town. The vestiges of its university can also be visited. It has an estimated population of 8000 inhabitants.

In 2000, Zabid was listed on the List of World Heritage Sites in Danger; the listing was made at the request of the Yemeni government due to a state of poor upkeep and conservation.

Zabid is listed right at the end, almost, as this World Heritage Sites list is sorted alphabetically.... :-)

This is the Yemen section from the following World Heritage Site List:


 Old Walled City of Shibam (1982)
 Old City of Sana'a (1986)
