The structure of Saheb A Zaman Zurkhaneh is crowned with five badgirs. 
It must be mentioned that the structure was renovated by Ali Derhami known as Mohammad Mashti (a hero gentleman) in 2001. Now Saheb A Zaman Zurkhaneh is managed by Mr. Derhami.

While visiting Amir Chakhmaq Complex, you are recommended to spend time to visit Saheb A Zaman Zurkhaneh where you can watch the ancient sports and rituals as well as hear the Persian poems and verses recited by Morshed who is singing and beating the zarb (drum) and zang (bell) at the same time. 
You must pay to watch the rituals but the price is not set and it is cheap. Enjoy the heroic atmosphere.
