... feeding the camels, we set off. Camels were soon swapped for walking, as we climbed dunes and hills. The views from the top were pretty excellent. Masoud explained that if you kept walking, you would find yourself in Pakistan or Afghanistan before you found civilization again. We also came across a grisly scene where a pidgeon had met its end at the talons of an eagle. See the picture of the eagle's footprints! As it got dark we built a fire in ...

Zein-o-din Caravanserai

A travel blog entry by chagger1 on Oct 22, 2013


A relaxing day.....bit of a sleep in & then another luxury bus spirited us across the semidesert floor to Zein-o-din caravanserai. It was a journey of approx 4hrs, NW from Kerman across some pretty uninspiring terrain. We travelled alongside a mountain range but it was in the quarter of the sun so not much could be seen. On the other side it was flat semi desert. Just about the only thing growing out here is pistachio, kept ...

The old town of Yazd is all mud brick/adobe and winding lane ways and the roofscape is dotted with badgirs (wind towers/wind catchers) that trap the breezes and funnel them down to the rooms below. The Yazdi badgirs capture the wind from four directions. We stood underneath a number of them, and the cooling effect is obvious and dramatic - it's like a fan is being pointed at you. There are typically pools of water underground as ...

Not Just Islam in Iran

... earth, water, and fire are key elements of the beliefs.

After visiting the fire temple, we then ventured to the Towers of Silence. Not actually towers, but rocky hills on the outskirts of Yazd. This place is a significant pre-Islamic Zoroastrian site. We climbed one of the hills to find a pit, which we were told was the place where Zoroastrians placed their deceased. They then allowed the vultures to naturally clean the corpses before pouring acid onto the ...
