  • It is not only because I recruit my tourist guide to-be students here and I like it here, but also because it is a great place to start learning about Zoroastrians in Yazd comprehensively. Aside from....  more »
  • The building was gorgeous. It was beautifully built and well-maintained. The museum inside wasn't that impressive though.  more »

  • I would pick this museum as one of the top things to do in Yazd. Once you pay the entrance fee, a guide walks you through the compound and explain the history of the place. Not only you will learn about the Zoroastrian religion but also about the purpose of the compound and its history and Mr. Markar who was the individual behind the project. This compound was originally built as a school and orphanage but now is used as a museum. I highly recommend visiting this museum.
  • A very good museum about Zoroastrian history, religion and culture.
