Review of Towers of silence

Towers of silence
Ranked #2 of 28 things to do in Yazd
Attraction details
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The site is appropriately bleak, with no vegetation in site and the craggy profile of arid mountains in the background. Don't expect explicit notes, this is no Disneyland. Instead, it all reeks of the genuineness of the timeless rituals of a religion older than Islam, Christianity and maybe Judaism as well.

The story begins the towers of silence is really interesting!!
After the people died they use to put them on top of the towers and they let the birds of prey clean the skin of the bones!!!

If you are interested in old history, this is the place to visit! Very old little town and the two towers on the hills. Walk up onto the hills and you will have the whole town at your feet.

The Zoroastrian complex outside Yazd is interesting to view, but no more than that. The signs are only in Farsi. The Towers themselves are on tall hills, and not too interesting, but the view from there is great.
