Yazd Tourist Traps: 3 reviews and 3 photos
This fairly new looking, adobe building was supposedly built as a prison by Alexander the Great, more than 2,300 years ago! I didn't meet anyone in Yazd who actually believed this story.
It's conveniently located next door to the tourist office and you have to pay 5,000 rials to go in.
This may well be the only tourist trap in Yazd.
