Yazd is a city in central Iran and the capital of the Yazd province. It is an ancient city dating back to the Sassanian Period (224-651 AD).

Get in
Yazd is located midway between Isfahan and Kerman, 689 km (427 miles) south east of Tehran.
Yazd is well connected to the rest of the country by planes, trains and buses.
There are International flights to Dubai and Damascus and daily flights to Tehran.

Get around
Most places in the old town are within easy walking distance from each other. Otherwise taxis are inexpensive. Motorcycle taxis are another fast and cheap way to move around the city but try to settle on a PRICE frombeforehand. Local buses are also available for travelers.

See
- Masjid-e Jame (Friday Mosque), dating back to the fourteenth century, is well worth a visit. It is an example of finest Persian mosaics and excellent architecture. Its minarets are the highest in the country. Admire it at night when it is lit up.
- Atashkadeh is the Zoroastrian fire temple. The fire on the inside has supposedly been burning since 470 AD. Entrance is free, though donations are appreciated.
- Yazd Tower of silence (Zoroastrian's Dakhmeh) - the name tower is misleading as they consist of huge circular walls, within those the dead were left to be picked clean by the vultures. This is done in accordance with Zoroastrian belief. However, the towers are not in use anymore and open to the public. A quiet, serene place.
- Yazd Market Square's Clock
- The cistern of Fatemeh-ye-Golshan
- Amir Chakhmakh complex, a breathtaking construction and a must-see. Visitors can climb to the top.
- Amir Chakmakh mosque, not to be confused with the complex of the same name, but nearby and easily visited when visiting the more famous complex.
- Yazd Water museum lots of interesting information about the Canat water distribution system, admission free, a must-see
- Hazireh mosque
- water reservoir with its four badgirs (wind towers)
- Khan-e-Lari, a historical house
- Alexanders prison, which was neither built by Alexander the great nor a prison, but a 15th-century domed school which is quite an interesting sight with a cafe in the 'prison room'. Often guides Would tell you the deep well in the middle of its courtyard was in fact built by Alexander the Great and was used as a dungeon but this seems doubtful.
- Tomb of the 12 imamswhich dates back to the early 11th century, has inscriptions inside bear the names of the twelve Shiite Imams, though none are actually buried here. It is now badly deteriorated.
- Madrasse-e-Kamalieh
- Bogeh-ye Seyed Rokamdin mosque
- Dowlat Abad Gardens with a building with a beautiful large badgir.

Yazd is very famous in Iran for its various handicrafts, such as carpet, silk fabrics, cashemers and also for its pastries.

Eat

Tourists say old-fashioned Persian Restaurants are the best way to go if you want a friendlier and more cultural atmosphere. Many restaurants serve the standard Iranian kebabas. There are a few international restaurants in Yazd which serve Italian, Indian, Arabian and Mexican food.
The traditional restaurant and tea house of Kohan Hotel serves various Iranian traditional dishes such as fessenjun, gheime as well as some $opean and Indian dishes. It has a nice atmosphere and is located near the Alexander Prison.

Drink

Get out
Meymand — population 60 in summer, 130 in winter, continuously occupied for more than 3,000 years
Kavir National Park. The magnificent Iranian deserts embrace all those who are interested in adventurous journey or trekking across the intact beautiful nature. The desert vividly signifies the diverse and colourful features of the Iranian terrain. The white vast salt flats, the golden dunes as well as the striking mounds in bright green, yellow and red create a marvellous spectrum of spectacular colours for day travellers in the desert. Undoubtedly, the desert's night does surpass all expectations and further displays an spectacle of appealing stars--appearing so temptingly real and near.
