    3 reviews

    Positioned above two isolated mountains, south of Yazd, are found two ‘Dakhma’ or Towers of Silence. The 18th century open towers contained dead decomposing bodies, to be devoured by birds, according to 3,000-year-old Zoroastrian belief about purity and cleanliness of the earth. The practice continued until 60 years ago. The two high circular towers are encircled by a disused well, ...

    1 review

    This shop stocks over 2,000 different carpets and takes US credit cards. A good selection and staff are friendly and don't pressure. Be sure to visit the rooftop for gorgeous views. Carpet buying is intimidating but this is the most pleasant experience I have had. Ask for Enayat.

    This large 700 year old ice house has been restored. Picturesque and the location next to a gas station makes it a good place for a quick break.

    Amir Chakhmaq Square

    1 review

    This lively square is the center of the action and a great starting point for a walk through the city. Overshadowed by the minarets of the nearby Hosseinieh, the square really comes to life in the evening when the dancing fountains, foot traffic, and lighting give it a lively vibe.

    This lovely mosque and associated minarets (they are across the square) is one of Yazd's most impressive Islamic structures. You can get a great view from the rooftop of the Sito fried chicken restaurant.

    This impressive mosque is the jewel of Yazd and has the highest minarets in Iran. Welcoming to non-Muslim visitors except during prayers on Friday.

    Yazd has plenty of handicraft shops but this multi-room shop built inside a traditional building is a pleasant place to browse for carpets, ceramics and jewelry.

    Kohan Hotel Rooftop

    1 review

    This hotel has a pleasant courtyard cafe (if you can find someone to work it) but the real treat here is the rooftop. Walk in and climb up the steps to the right past reception. Go to the top and unbolt the door to find sweeping 360 degree views of the city and its famous windtowers and domed mosques.

    1 review

    The most popular place to buy Yazd's famous sweets. Can be very crowded and some items sell out by end of day. As a foreign visitor, if you ask politely, you can sample one of each by asking at the small counter to the right of the main counter.

    After years of sanctions, the Iranians are a very industrious people who seem to have created home grown versions of every industry imaginable, including violins. This charming little shop isn't really open to the public but, if the door is open, the charming owner will kindly invite you in.

    A misnomer that is closed to the public. An attractive landmark and reference point to look for as you explore the alleys of Yazd.

    This pit stop on the road between Shiraz and Yazd has a nice ice house and a mosque. A good place to gas up and use the bathroom.

    Think of this as a small Zoroastrian museum and not a fire temple and you will be less disappointed. There is a fire here but this supposed place of worship gets very little respect from locals and can be a zoo. During our visit, students were charging their phones next to the main alter!

    Pleasant little mosque that is worth a quick stop if you are on a stroll but not a destination location among the tough competition in Yazd.

    A pleasant historic building but not dissimilar from others you will experience thoughout Yazd. Fine to check it off the list but doesn't require a special visit.
