Amir Chakhmagh, Yazd

3.8
#7 of 10 in Things to do in Yazd
Casting an impressive shadow over its surrounding square, Amir Chakhmagh stands as an iconic mosque complex in the capital city. With an intricate facade of 24 symmetrical sunken alcoves, the 15th-century structure rises three stories over the city's central square, overlooking a historic bathhouse, rows of fountains, and a market bazaar built into the base of the facade. Climb the narrow spiral staircase to the first floor and gaze out from the railed alcoves across the bustling, vibrant square. At night, amber lighting floods each alcove in a memorable spectacle.

    An absolutely great photo motif. Best at dusk or at night. Then, the photos are more beautiful when all light is illuminated and illuminated.
