The abandoned town of Kharanaq in Iran


The abandoned village of Kharanaq is near the city of Yazd, in central Iran. Build in the shadow of a scenic mountain, the site is occupied for at least 4,000 years while some of the mud brick houses still standing today are up to 1,000 years old.

Only a few people live in Kharanaq today. Until a few years ago there was even a guest house in the village but not many tourists visit the area. Some restoration work is taking place around the village.
