Asia: Iran, Yazd Province

Bahabad

.
Bahabad City
 
 

Bahabad is in the central part of Bafq Township. The name means “the best of town”. “Ismailieh”, a rebel group that fought Mongol’s rule over Iran in 13th century, had established strong fortifications in Bahabad.

When the Mongol ruler, Holakou, led a campaign to suppress Ismailieh, his army virtually razed to ground both the city and their fortifications, whose remains may still be visited near the present-day Bahabad.

But the town flourished again, however, and its Congregational Mosque with a unique grandeur of its own is a site to visit for those interested in glorious historical buildings.
