City of Windcatchers
Step back in time as you explore the ancient UNESCO World Heritage city of Yazd, a desert town known for its distinct Persian architecture style, punctuated by mud-brick buildings, wind towers, domed ice houses, and water reservoirs. As a hub of Zoroastrianism, the city boasts a fire temple, as well as a variety of intricately decorated mosques and historic buildings. On a trip to Yazd, you can experience life in the dry, inhospitable desert surroundings, see the famous underground web of water tunnels, purchase quality handwoven "termeh" cloth, and sample the delicious local sweets. Our Iran trip itinerary tool combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
