Farrokhi Yazdi’s House , built in the late Qajar and early Pahlavi period, has two entrances in northern part, two central courtyards and some rooms around the courtyard. This house has a large underground with an area as same as that of complete building. After the first entrance, there is a corridor in which there are a staircase to the rooftop and entrances to the rooms.

On the opposite side, two small and large rooms link the courtyards. The first courtyard is smaller than the second courtyard, and a pond is located in the middle of it. On the wall of southern side, there is a slight plaster decoration.

Learn about Farrokhi Yazdi

It is good to know more about the owner of the house, Mirza Muhammad, known as Farrokhi. He was born in 1888 in Yazd. At age of 16, he studied science and then worked in a bakery and later in textile industry. He was a serious Democrat in the early days of the Constitutional Revolution and the emergence of the Democratic Party in Iran. Thus, he was among the liberals of Yazd.

As Farrokhi Yazdi had great vertu in poetry, he expressed his revolutionary thoughts in his poems and as a result of writing revolutionary poems, the ruler of Yazd ordered to sew his lips with needles and thread as his punishment.
Farrokhi Yazdi was executed on October 18, 1939, under the command of Reza Shah, in a police prison by the air inmates. Unfortunately, there is no accurate information about his tomb.

Following is some verse of his poems which we have translated into English:
To turn the tyranny on the way of liberty,
One should take the sword by his hand.
How long is the world famished for the minor stuffed?
The revenge of the ravenous should be taken of the minor stuffed.
