Yazd

Things to do - general

The city Yazd is situated right in the centre of Iran and almost entirely surrounded by deserts.
It has been an important station on the old caravan routes to Central Asia and India. Its history dates back to the time of Alexander the Great who praised the city, which he visited on his way to India. Some historians on the other hand, are of the opinion that Yazd derived its name from the founder of the city Yazdgerd, the first of the Sassanian dynasty.
The city was conquered by the Arabs in the 7th century as well as by the Mongols under the leadership of Genghis Khan in 13th century and Timurlane in the 14th century. The city flourished in the 14th and 15th centuries, but its commercial success and stability were never transformed into political status. The town fell into decline after the end of the Safavid era, and remained little more than a provincial outpost until the extension of the railway line here under the last Shah.

Known as the “Pearl of the Desert”, Yazd is a dazzling depiction of real Persian architecture. The geographical features of this region have made people develop special architectural styles. The existence of special ventilation structures, called badgirs, is a distinctive feature of the architecture of this city. A badgir is a high structure on the roof under which, in the interior of the building, there is a small pool.
