Yazd, the first and only city in Iran listed as a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site is located 623km away from Tehran, at the center of the country. It is not by accident that such an honor is bestowed upon Yazd. There are a great number of cities in Iran known for their former glorious urban design and architecture. But just a few have retained their old look and Yazd is definitely one of the finest. The city is also one of the oldest cradles of civilization in Iran and numerous authenticated historical sites and remains attest to the historical and cultural significance of Yazd. The stunning example of “Qanats” is enough to show you the advanced level of existence in this ancient abode of Iranians. These underground canals were built about a thousand years BC to provide access to undercurrent streams. Another fascinating technical artistry of ancient Yazd inhabitants is some peculiar structures named Badgir. Literally meaning windcatchers, these complex systems ubiquitous in Yazd functioned as natural ventilators, absorbing and cooling the currents thus creating a refreshing atmosphere inside while the outside world is at the verge of melting under the scorching desert sun. You will get used to coming across these beautiful structures on Yazd tours. Our journey in Yazd take a whole day and we visit one spectacular spot after another in the magnificence of this museum of a city. Yazd tourist attractions include marvelous religious edifices from different historical periods such as the sublime Jame Mosque of Yazd, probably the finest instance of grand mosques in Iran and a couple of extraordinary Zoroastrian fire temples. Yazd accommodation facilities are equally unique and alluring. Mostly situated in the divine neighborhoods of Yazd old town, Yazd hotels caress the souls of their guests with their windcatchers and expansive yards where fountain pools breathe a new life into the torrid desert air. These matchless features explain why Yazd desert tours are among our most popular packages.
