Historical Saryazd Village

Saryazd or Farafar

The village was called Farafar before Islam. After invasion of Arabs to Iran, the villagers insisted to continue their ancestral religion; thus, Farafar was destroyed by Arabs. However the village was built again with name of Saryazd after two centuries. Then it was flourished in Seljuk's, Ilkhans, and Safavid era and it was gradually recessed again. 
Passing through the three-thousand-year-old gate of Farafar, we enter Saryazd Village .

The last place that we can visit is Post house ( Chapar Khane ) which was built in Sassanid era. It had been once on the way of merchants and travelers passing famous Silk Road. It had a square plan with a garret at each corner. Here, post officers could change their tired horses with fresh ones to deliver governmental news and letters as fast as possible.
