The house of a poet from Yazd, Vahshi Bafqi

The house known as Vahshi Bafqi's House is a small adobe house with the area of 120 square meters which was built in a quadrilateral shape with 7 rooms. Its big porch has given the house an amazing display. 
There is a basement under the whole building. It should be said that the basement under the east side of the house used to be a place in which water ran in the old times and it was used as a cool place in the hot summers.

The owner of Vahshi Bafqi's House

Let's know the owner of this old house; Kamaloddin Mohammad Vahshi Bafqi, an iranian passionate and elegant poet of 10th century AH whose odes, sonnets, couplets, and composite-ties are well-known and sweet. He was born in 893 century AH in Bafgh. This famous poet is one of the poets whose sonnets have become an inseparable part of the sweet Persian literature. Vahshi Bafqi was an isolated man and loved his own place more than anywhere else. He really loved romantic sonnets. He lived in a house of bricks and mud and recited from the bottom of heart:
It's the only real house in this alley and it is no place for crazy visitors. 
I have built this house with my own desire that is appropriate for its own residents.

He passed away in 961 A.H.S and was buried in Imam Khomeini Street against Shahzadeh Fazel's Shrine. At the time being, his tomb is destroyed though.
