Yazd Start your day with a visit to the old city of Yazd (UNESCO World Heritage Site) where you can wander in the maze of narrow alleys called Ashti Konoon. Walk in the old city and while enjoying the combination of history, art and architecture, head to visit some sites such as Art House; from where you can view the whole old city; the great Jame Mosque of Yazd, and Amir Chakhmaq Complex; these two masterpieces of architecture will amaze you by the beauty of Persian- Islamic art, glory and majesty. Have lunch and rest for a while. In the afternoon, you will go to watch the cooking ceremony in which you can participate and feel the ceremony as a local. It should be mentioned that cooking is a traditional ceremony for making a local soup called Ash-e Gandom (wheat soup) which is not practiced in a kitchen but in the street participated by locals. Having experienced this ceremony, head to Khavidak, a village near Yazd where special mourning ceremonies are held to honor the night before Ashura. Overnight stay at the hotel in Yazd.
