Masjid-e Jame (Friday Mosque), dating back to the fourteenth century, is well worth a visit. It is an example of finest Persian mosaics and excellent architecture. Its minarets are the highest in the country. Admire it at night when it is lit up.
Atashkadeh is the Zoroastrian fire temple. The fire on the inside has supposedly been burning since 470 AD. Entrance is 10.000 rials, visiting hours 8.00-11.30 and 16.30-19.00.
Yazd Tower of silence (Zoroastrian’s Dakhmeh) – the name tower is misleading as they consist of huge circular walls on top of two hills, within those the dead were left to be picked clean by the vultures. This is done in accordance with Zoroastrian belief.
However, the towers are not in use anymore and open to the public. A quiet, serene place. The modern Zoroastrian cemetery is just there as well. Entrance free. To get there using public transport, you can take the bus going south on Imam Khomeini from the bus stop across the street of Amir Chakhmaq Complex. Get down on the last stop end of the line and then from there ask people for another bus going to “Dakhme”, might need to wait a bit and be sure that the people will tell the bus driver to drop you on the correct bus stop, bus tickets should be 1.000 rial each. Once you are off the bus, its a corner of a 4-way intersection and you go right, you will see the towers, its a 10-minute walk.
