An unrivaled opportunity too see the unique view of Yazd, from Art house roof top -part of Malek Zadeh mansions, dating back to Qajar- in the heart of Old town.Sit next to the wonderful Badgir(Win tower),watch a frame of the serene desert sky ,and enjoy a sip of herbal tea and local homemade food. Experience unforgetable moments with the Art house family in a welcoming ,friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
At the entrance was written: “ Entrance fee is 40000 rials, but if you use cafe there will be no entrance fee, I and my wife and friend spend 500,000 rials on cafe, they asked us for 100,000 more for entrance fee , the prices are already expensive enough!! And also they added 10 percent service fee !
It’s a shame to see tourists just like a walking Euros !!

The Zoroastrians still exist but due to the creep of the town to the Towers of Silence they are no longer used. In the olden days the dead were taken up to the hilltop tower and laid out in circles for the vultures to eat thereby efficiently disposing of the body. Make sure you have a guide to explain the religion to you.
After seeing the small buildings at the bottom where the relatives would have gathered climb up the hill to see the well preserved courtyard.

Day or night, this Masjed-e Jame is worth a visit. Built in the 12th century and remodelled in the 14th, it has some of the highest minarets, 48 meters, in Iran.
The main entrance is different from most other mosques. Due to the slender structure, it looks even higher. The predominantly blue tiles give this building a striking appearance, outside as well as inside. It looks stunning.

A very well maintained mosque classic in design and decor. very open and easy to enjoy.
A small museum is to the far side and for a small fee (To assist with restoration) you can see how it has been restored with some pieces from the original building works

Kharanagh Village is 70 km from Yazd. It's a brilliant abandoned village with unique texture. It really worth to walk in maze-like allies at this village.

The Dowlatabad Garden is an example of Persian Paradise Gardens meaning it has a Chahar Bagh layout intended to bring to mind the four rivers of the Garden of Eden. A Chahar Bagh layout is a quadrangular/rectangular canal pattern in which waterways or pathways are used to quarter the garden.
This is a must see site while you are visiting Yazd.

You don’t wanna leave your experience of getting aquatinted with the Zoroastrian culture incomplete, after paying the visit to the Adoryan (fire-temple) and Dakhma (the air-burial place), by missing this unique museum of Zoroastrian culture and history.
There are English speaking Zoroastrian guides that’ll provide you with information on both the culture and history of the people, and the complex itself, which has been a school-orphanage down to not a long time ago.
