Yazd is a heaven for anyone who has an eye for history. The land of the wind catchers is culturally diverse and houses sites that are renowned for their grandeur and history. Unlike many traditional earthen towns, the city has escaped modernization and succeeded in conserving its traditional monuments. Yazd is home to some iconic monuments and museums that include Jame mosque, water museum and Amir Chakhmagh. Thanks to Mohamad for accompanying our Dane guests in Iran.

On October 29, Iranians marked the international day of Cyrus the Great, the ancient ruler of the Persian Empire and the author of the world’s first human rights charter.
Cyrus is held in great regard in Iran for creating the largest empire of civilized nations then known in the world, around 600 years before Christ.
Each year Iranians commemorate this day by gathering at the tomb of Cyrus, in Pasargadae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site to pay respects and celebrate one of his greatest achievements. Our Spanish guests joined Uppersia Persepolis day tour and they were accompanied by Samira to learn more about the greatness of one of the most influential people in history.
