Day 1: Yazd
We begin our sightseeing by visiting Zoroastrian’s Tower of Silence which a circular and raised structure built by Zoroastrians on top of a hill. It was used for incarnation for dead bodies to be exposed to carrion birds. We next have the chance to visit Yazd Fire-Temple, a place of worship for Zoroastrians, which contains in its heart a 2500-year-old fire and the Zoroastrians’ Museum containing numerous ancient writings. Among numerable attractions of Yazd, here we will visit Amir Chakhmakh Complex. The complex is decorated by a long rectangular pool, surrounded by small shops; not only can one enjoy shopping for souvenirs from such traditional and local shops which mainly sell handicrafts, but he/she can also rest their eyes on the alluring beauty of the architecture of the mosque.
Day 2: Yazd
In the morning Yazd Water Museum, Museum showcasing the region’s ancient aqueduct construction, featuring tools & technology exhibits. We will experience walking through narrow allies of Fahadan District with tall mud and straw walls, which are reminiscent of the ancient architecture of the city. The passages of the city were previously replete with arcs, curves, and bends, wide enough for just two or three pedestrians to walk through. Last but not Least, is Dowlat Abad Garden (WHS) that is renown all across the globe due to its tallest wind tower of the world.
Day 3: Yazd
Today you have the choice of taking an optional excursion outside of Yazd, which includes the impressive Kharanak mud-brick village, Chak Chak fire temple, and the Meybod citadel. The impressive town of Kharanak is believed to be 1,000 years old and you can explore the abandoned structures of this hillside settlement, peering into the houses of wealthy merchants and hammams (bathhouses). You will also explore the valley and nearby mountains and get great pictures of the aqueducts that formed part of the underground water system. The system is still used to irrigate the fields here – great shocks of green that sit against the brown desert. Chak is one of the most important Zoroastrian pilgrimage sites in Iran, and you’ll climb up the mountainside to reach the fire temple – your efforts rewarded with wonderful views. Then back to Yazd.
