Amirchakhmaq Square Complex


Amir Chaghmaq Square is the name of a square in the city of Yazd. The Amir Chaghmaq complex in Yazd includes a bazaar, a mosque, and two water reservoirs that date back to the Timurid period. Amir Chaghmaq Square is one of the most important historical and tourist complexes in Yazd.

Amir Jalaluddin Chaghmaq, one of Shahrokh Teymouri’s commanders in the 8th century AD when he was the ruler of Yazd, built a complex consisting of a plaza, a public bath, caravanserais, a monastery, an aqueduct and a cold water well to make Yazd prosperous. Fatemeh Khatun, his wife (known as Seti Fatemeh), whose grave is located on the north side of Arsen Amir Chaghmaq, helped him in this task.

The restoration of the tiles of this historic building was the responsibility of Professor Mohammad Ali Falahati Marvast, but unfortunately there is no name or address of this eminent architect in this huge building.
