"YADZ - A living museum (almost)" Iran Favorite Tip by joks

Iran General: 97 reviews and 104 photos


Favorite thing: Yadz is a special special city. A very special place to slow down and relax and soak up the uniqueness of the ancient city believed to have been inhabitated for a long time ....unless it is 45 degrees outside!

Walking around the old city, its easy to get loss within the labyrynth of mud walls and homogeneous brown of the streetscapes. Let yourself get lost (only during morning and evening hours in summer time) and soak in the details of the architecture of the city.

The doors of the houses for instance, the door knocks are of different sizes and shapes and produces different knocking sounds to let the habitants know if the visitor is a man or woman. This is so that the women of the house would be properly veiled if the visitor was a male friend.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
