Amir Chakhmaq Complex

The great tradition of constructing massive public squares in Iran dates back to many centuries ago. Naghsh-e Jahan in Isfahan and Amir Chakhmaq in Yazd are two defining examples of such public spaces. The former needs no introduction, as it is the largest historic square in the world. The latter, Amir Chakhmaq Square spans over 5346 m2 and includes Amir Chakhmaq Complex. This grand monument consists of six sections: 1. A mosque 2. A well 3. A caravanserai 4. A bathhouse 5. A confectionery 6. A tekyeh (a holy place of mourning for Shia Muslims). Amir Chakhmaq Mosque is a historic edifice built in 1438 during the reign of Timurid dynasty. In the exterior of the mosque, one can enjoy the signature Iranian art of tile-work and calligraphy. The plaster-work and the colorful Persian rugs covering the expansive floor is extraordinary. People perform their daily prayer under the fabulous dome of the mosque. Tourists visiting the place at noon should wait until the end of the ceremony to see the interior of the mosque. Together with Jameh Mosque of Yazd, Amir Chakhmaq Complex is the most visited of Yazd’s tourist attractions. Isfahan, Shiraz and Yazd are the cities in Iran with the highest number of points of interest for tourists. Domestic and international agencies put these cities in the list of their top destinations. In this short article, we will introduce some of the exciting tours in the ancient "city of windcatchers".

Yazd’s Desert Tour

Great Salt Desert and Lut Desert cover one-fourth of Iran’s land area. It is only natural that such a region should be one of the main destinations of desert tours in the world. Kashan, Isfahan, Kerman and Sistan and Baluchestan are Iran’s major desert cities. Yazd’s desert tours take you to Bafgh Desert (locals call it Daranjir) in the Great Salt Desert. Bafgh boasts one of the best desert areas of Iran. You will find all the wonderful desert sights in Yazd’s legendry Bafgh Desert. We recommend you book an official Bafgh Desert tour if you are heading towards the area. There are dangerous quagmires in Bafgh desert and one could lose his way in the infinity of dunes.
