Kharanaq Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 61 photos


Part of an enjoyable day trip from Yazd involves a loop along quiet roads to the ancient mud-brick village of Kharanaq. Parts of the village are believed to be more than 1000 years old, and it's been occupied in some form for more than 4000 years.

The Qajar-era mosque, 17th-century shaking minaret and caravanserai on the edge of town have all been restored. Many of the buildings are falling down and at least one tourist has fallen through the roof here, so be careful where you step. From the village you can walk about 250m (820ft) down the valley below to an ancient aqueduct, built to irrigate the surrounding fields.
