The Amir Chakhmaq Complex is a prominent structure in Yazd, Iran, noted for its symmetrical sunken alcoves. It is a mosque located on a square of the same name. It also contains a caravanserai, a tekyeh, a bathhouse, a cold water well, and a confectionery. At night, the building is lit up after twilight hours after sun set with orange lighting in the arched alcoves which makes it a spectacle.

Water Museum

Throughout the ages the lives of people living in Yazd, sandwiched as it is between two desert, has been dominated by water. The incredible system of Qanats (underground water channels) have for millennia directed water to where it is needed, safe from the parching sun. The Yazd water museum examines the role water has played to Yazdis through the ages. It also describes the lives of those very brave men who dug and maintained the tunnels in order to keep the city alive.

zorkhaneh-yazd-iran

 Zorkhaneh (Iranian Traditional Gym)

The traditional gymnasium in which varzesh-e bastani is practiced is known as the zurkhaneh, literally the "house of strength". An aspiring member may be a male from any social class or religion, but they must first spend at least a month watching from the audience before they can join. Traditionally, the zurkhanehs demanded no payment from their athletes, and depended instead on public donations. In return, the zurkhaneh provided community services and protection.Zurkhanehs have commonly had strong political affiliations, either advocating or denouncing particular governments. This type of sports diplomacy is said to be a natural extension of the patriotic nature of zurkhaneh training dating back to the days when pahlevans served in the king's court.
