Yazd, Two Days in the City of Zoroastrianism

Yazd, Two Days in the City of Zoroastrianism, Yazd, Iran (B)

Home of Zoroastrianism, the ancient religion of Persia until the Muslim conquest in the 7th century, the city of Yazd is a maze of mud-brick streets that surprises you at every corner.

From the impressive Jameh Mosque, a unique sample of Islamic art with the tallest minaret in the country, to the Towers of Silence, where Zoroastrians left the dead bodies of their loved ones under the open sky to purify them in the afterlife, Yazd is certainly a place like no other in Iran!

Follow my visit in this city of the desert while I discover what the Zoroastrian religion is all about!

I reached Yazd by a private transfer from Isfahan organised by Iran’s travel, which included a stop at all the highlights between Isfahan and Yazd, including Nain Mosque, Narin Castle, Chack Chack and Kharanaq. Check out my post from Isfahan to Yazd: discovering Naim Mosque, Meybod, Chak Chak & Kharanaq!

Yazd is a considerably small city, so you can explore all the main sites by foot. The only exception may be the Towers of Silence, which can be easily reached by Snap, the local taxi app. Since there isn’t much information online about this city, I decided to book a guided tour to make sure that I didn’t miss anything! ......
