Interesting place for one of the stops during the day. 1-1,5h is enought for this place. You can buy trip from Yazd for 50 euro. One of the stops is this place. I would recommend this place to the others.

It is a fantastic deserted adobe city, with only three or four families still living there. Mostly destroyed, with an uncertain age, its inhabitants has moved to a new location not far from there.
