Amir Chakhmagh, Yazd

(240+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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. See Amir Chakhmagh and all Yazd has to offer by arranging your trip with our Yazd itinerary planner.

  • Some places really come alive at night when lit up and this is one of them. The fountains in the foreground change colours as does the facade. Great atmosphere with lots of people around.  more »
