You can find this place just after the Amir Chaqmargh square. These strongmen ranges from the young to the old and they show their battle-readiness by swinging heavy clubs, doing fancy footwork and doing sets with bows. There is a drummer/ singer who channels the energy to these strongmen by singing about Imam Ali and Hussayn (I think, i apologise if i am wrong). Very cool to watch, those club swinging is harder than it looks because i tried swinging the 8kg ones after their workout.

Zurkhane which literally means the house of strength is a place for men to practice a form of Persian martial arts. It is located in an ally-way just north of Amir Chakhmagh Square. It is open to tourists and not only can you observe this combination of dancing and weightlifting activity that is steeped in Shi’ite mysticism, but also investigate the 15th-century water tank housed beneath the building, and experience the cooling effects of Yazdi badgirs (wind-catchers) first-hand.
