Among several subsidiaries within a large architectural design, tomb architecture has a great value for all communities. Regarding the value and importance of historical buildings, it is necessary to examine the ways of dealing with maintaining such kind of buildings. The present study aims to assess the maintenance ways of Mashhad Gonbad Sabz monuments through participating in voluntary associations due to its role in the citys architectural and historical identity. It is argued that fundamental changes seem especially necessary in voluntary associations which are used for more efficient protection of monuments.  Due to structural weakness of current management and culture, the implementation of this type of associations is essential.
