Zeinodin Caravanserai , Caravanserai
Zeinodin Caravanserai is one of two rounded caravanserais of Iran built in the 16th century in the heart of desert. However, It is charmingly renovated, tastefully decorated and was given the UNESCO award for best renovated building in 2006.
The caravanserai was the place where gunmen and trustees are located and now by keeping the same traditional space, it have become the caravanserai for tourists in Yazd province .
Caravanserais were a common feature not only along the Silk Road, but also along the Achaemenid Empire‘s Royal Road, a 2,500-kilometre-long ancient highway that stretched from Sardis to Susa.
The Persians had set up such caravanserai accommodations across the Persian silk road every 20 km or thereabouts. However, these places served as resting spots during the travelers or pilgrims long journeys where they could relax and have food.
Zeinodin Caravanserai is one such accommodation. The caravanserai which is traditionally constructed can become the highlight of your travel to Iran where you may experience some of the best and most memorable nights of your life.
However, the inn is architecturally important and there is no other example except the caravanserai between Kashan and Natanz that has been destroyed.
This nice caravanserai is actually one of the 999 ones constructed during Safavid dynasty to promote trade. However, today this is the only renovated and has 52 rooms equipped for the travelers’ stay.
You may sleep on floor mattresses in your own room surrounded by Persian curtains down a cool hallway.
interestingly, you can go on the rooftop of caravanserai and look as far as you can see, imagining what it must have been like to see the camel caravans coming across the desert floor along the silk road.
You will also have the chance of attending lectures and then going up in the dark of night and laying on the rooftop-the star show is amazing and be sure to catch a sunrise and sunset up there.
