Meymand Village - Iran Tourist Attractions
The village of Meymand in Kerman is renowned for its amazing rock architecture. This hand-carved village, spanning 420 square kilometers, is situated at an elevation of 2,240 meters above sea level, nestled between plains and mountains. Its history dates back two to three thousand years. The houses in the village, known as “Kichehs,” are stacked on top of each other, forming five layers. Meymand has about 406 Kichehs, totaling around 2,560 rooms. The architecture of these Kichehs functions as a thermal insulator, preventing the penetration of wind and rain, and is also resistant to fire. The mosque, Hosseiniyeh, school, bathhouse, and fire temple of Meymand are among the notable attractions of this village.
