Overview

Zoroastrian Tour in Yazd Vicinity

Zoroastrianism is one of the most wondrous religions in the whole world. Unlike the past, now it has turned into small communities in different parts of the world. Yazd Province in Iran is one of the places which has a Zoroastrian community. This Zoroastrian Tour in Yazd vicinity will make you familiar with this amazing culture.

Dakhmeh, which is a Zoroastrian cemetery, is a little bit different than other kinds of cemeteries. There’s a place on top of the soil towers where they used to put the dead bodies inside. It has an interesting story behind it, which preferably you would hear it in the Cham Dakhmeh.

There are some natural sights worth visiting such as Mobarakeh’s big twin cypresses (Sarv) which are 550 years old. One of the oldest trees in the country, Cham cypress (Sarv) is 3500 years old.

Anyone who has visited Yazd knows hospitality and kindness of Yazd people. A very kind, gentle-hearted woman, called Dowlat Khanoom, is waiting to welcome us in Persian with a sweet melodic accent in her house.

Visiting the Markar museum, the Zoroastrian History, and Culture museum, located in Yazd, with a local Zoroastrian leader will make you properly familiar with traditional celebrations and rituals of the Zoroastrians, traditional dress code of Zoroastrians, Zoroastrian holy shrines such as Chak Chak, Qale Asadan, and etc. 

Qale Asadan (Seti Pir) is one of the Zoroastrian holy shrines such as other shrines like Chak Chak. But this one, not everyone has heard of and there’s a story behind it, so Qale Asadan is more mysterious. Our leader will explain all about that.

At the end of the course, if you have plans to know things about Zoroastrians, you must see a fire temple and hear all the history behind it from a Zoroastrian.
