Abarkooh is a very historical and cultural land and so old that the first three works of Yazd province registered in the list of national Historical Monuments, include the high dome, military minarets, and Abarkooh Grand Mosque.
There are many legends and stories about the antiquity of the Historical Monuments of Abarkooh. For example, the seedlings of the ancient cypress tree of this city are said to have been planted by the prophets Zarathustra, Son of Adam, and Japheth, son of Noah.
Although such statements may not have scientific documents, the attention paid to Historical Monuments shows their role, especially among visitors and tourists.
The first registered Ancient construction of Yazd province related to Abarkooh was registered by “Andre Godar,” the first director of the National Museum of Iran, on August 1, 1934.
“Gonbad Aali” of Abarkooh is one of the architectural masterpieces of Iran. This thousand-year-old building belongs to the Seljuk epoch located on the outskirts of Abarkuh on a high mountain. They built it inside the dome of the crypt of “Amid al-Din Shams al-Dawlah” of the Daylamites and his wife.
“Military Minarets” and “Peacock Tomb of the Two Holy Mosques” are the second Historical monuments ever to be registered. These minarets are the remains of a complex, including the mosque, school, and the old market of Abarkooh.
These buildings were destroyed in the Afghan invasion and then by natural disasters. Only the beautiful entrance, engraved with turquoise tiles with the word “Allahu Akbar,” remains. Today we see the construction of a street and several houses around these Historical monuments.
The title of the third registered building of Yazd province belongs to the “Abarkooh Mosque,” located near the main square of Abarkooh city (Imam Hossein Square) since the Mongol era.
One of the special features of the Abarkooh Mosque is that it has two altars. The first altar is in the Mongol style.
