Overview

Kharanq village is located in the center of Kharanq district in Ardakan city. It has many places of interest, including one of the oldest and largest residential castles in Yazd province.

Kharanagh village is considered one of the lesser-known destinations of Iran, which is very popular among European tourists and has one of the largest adobe structures in Iran. Kharanagh is a 4,500-year-old village.

Chak Chak (Pir Sabz) shrine near Ardakan, Yazd, is one of the most important Zoroastrian shrines in the world, which is very significant and valuable to the followers of this religion. However, visiting this spiritual place for tourists from other religions can lead to cultural closeness and familiarity with different religions and rituals. Zoroastrians have many shrines in Yazd; However, the Chak Chak shrine is more famous due to its special shape and geographical location; besides Zoroastrians, many tourists also visit it.

Meybod dates back to ancient history, where many old urban phenomena and the remains of ancient buildings could be recognized. The oldest document of historical identity and the beginning of urban development in Yazd is "Narin Cast".

WHAT YOU WILL DO?
1
Kharanaq village

In the morning, we will first drive to Kharanaq village, where we will discover more about the history of the village, with visiting a single-minaret mosque and Kharanaq castle. Winding alleys are the wonders of this castle which were used to surprise bandits.

2
Chak Chak shrine

We will drive to Chak Chak, where you have to walk about 360 cement steps. Reaching the shrine requires climbing many steps on a winding path along which one can see writings from the Avesta on the wall.

3
Visiting Narin Castle

After visiting this holy Zoroastrian place, we will drive to Meybod, where your first impression might be its striking monochromatic architecture of desert brick, the Narin Castle. This castle is the most important building in Meybod, a historical old castle made of thick and big bricks. These bricks show the old age of this castle.

5
Local Traditional Icehouse
