100 flood-hit structures in Yazd to undergo restoration

TEHRAN – Restoration work is to commence on a selection of 100 historical buildings, which suffered damage from floodwaters in Yazd province during the past Iranian year (ended on March 21).

Jameh Mosque of Yazd, Amir Chakhmaq Complex, Seyyed Rokn Addin Mausoleum, and the mausoleum of Seyyed Shams al-Din are among the monuments shortlisted for restoration, a local tourism official said on Sunday.

In July 2017, the historical structure of the city of Yazd was named a UNESCO World Heritage. Wedged between the northern Dasht-e Kavir and the southern Dasht-e Lut on a flat plain, the oasis city enjoys a very harmonious public-religious architecture that dates from different eras.

Yazd is usually referred to as a delightful place to stay, or a “don’t miss” destination by almost all of its visitors. It teems with mud-brick houses that are equipped with innovative badgirs (wind catchers), atmospheric alleyways, and many Islamic and Iranian monuments that shape its eye-catching city landscape.

It is a living testimony to the intelligent use of limited available resources in the desert for survival. Water is brought to the city by the qanat system. Each district of the city is built on a qanat and has a communal center.
