Have you ever heard anything about the city of windcatchers? A city where there is a Zoroastrian fire temple and its fire which hasn’t gone down for years? A mudbrick old town with picturesque views everywhere you look around? If not, let me welcome you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized city of Yazd.
What is Interesting About the City of Windcatchers
Located 270 km southeast of Isfahan, you’ll get to the fabulous city of windcatchers with a hot desert climate. Yazd is surrounded by desert so it’s no surprise that it is the driest major city in Iran. As the moment you enter the city, you get to see one common thing everywhere in Yazd: unique Persian architecture. This mud brick city is mostly known for its qanats (underground channels), Windcatchers, rugs, Termeh, and special kinds of sweets which are known as “Shirini Yazdi” all over Iran.
