TheProvince of Yazd is located in the deserts of Iran close to the Spice and Silk Roads. The historic city of Yazd bears witness to an exceptionally elaborate construction system in earthen architecture and the adaptation of the ways of living to hostile environment for several millennia. Yazd Province is an outstanding example of a traditional human settlement which is representative of the interaction of man and nature in a desert environment that results from the optimal use and clever management of the limited resources that are available in such an arid setting by the qanat system and the use of earth in constructing buildings with sunken courtyards and underground spaces.

Ancient villages in Yazd are a great tourist destination for those who seek an authentic, unique adventure. Below is a list of the most beautiful and fascinating villages of Yazd Province:

Saryazd is one of the magnificent historic villages in Iran’s central desert region village and located 6km North East of the city of Mehriz, 28km South West of Yazd city. Saryazd village is surrounded by a number of mountains on the north east and north west. With an altitude of 1380 meters above sea level the village has a hot and dry weather just like the whole region. Archeological researches conducted on the earthenware found at the area have provided proofs to the fact that this region has passed its most lively times during Saljuqid, Ilkhanid and Safavid eras. According to some historical evidence and what experts believe, before the city of Yazd came to existence, there had been an area near Saryazd village; it was named Farafar and fell into ruins after a period of drought.

Thanks to its natural and historical situation, green gardens and farms, aqueducts brimful of water, and numerous historical monuments, Saryazd village has many tourist attractions.
