What’s different about Yazd?

Yazd’s Historical Structure (Prospective World Heritage Site) a vast collection of public-religious monuments comprising different Islamic architectural elements of different periods in a harmonious combination with climatic conditions. The main highlights include:

 Jamee Mosque of Yazd the magnificent 14th-century masterpiece crowned with two lofty minarets dominated by an exquisitely tiled entrance portal.

 Shrine of Seyed Rokneddin consists of a most notable blue-tiled dome visible from any elevated point around the city, and impressive interior stucco decorations.

 Amir Chakhmagh Square a stunning three-story facade with rows of perfectly proportioned galleries, most photogenic, around sunset and night-time.

 Dowlatabad Gardens renowned for having Iran’s tallest wind-catcher, set amid quiet gardens with intricate latticework and exquisite stained-glass windows.
