Yazd, the ‘Desert Bride’ is the capital of Yazd province and it’s the second oldest continuously habitated city in the world.
Walking through the streets and alleys of the old town will leave you astonished at the adobe architecture of badgirs (wind tower), the old houses with tall walls, and narrow alleys …
For thousands of years, people in this land secured water to survive the desert heat by help of Qanats, the galleries under ground to transfer water from an under ground source outside to the city. So, we suggest that you visit the Water Museum to know how the people accomplished that in old past.
This city and some of the villages nearby are the center of the Zoroastrian culture in Iran and you can visit the Zoroastrian Fire temple and get familiar with this different ancient culture.
If you are interested in Muslim monuments, visit the Jame Mosque, which has the tallest twin minarets in Iran and also the highest entrance gate, decorated with mosaic tiles … it is Amazing !
