    Khan Theological School

    Walking in the traditional bazaar of Yazd, takes you to the  Khan theological school. In 1772, one of the famous governors of Yazd, Mohammad Taghi Khan, commissioned the building of this theological school.

    The impressive architectural style of the school, dating back to the late Zandiyeh and early Qajarid eras, makes it a building worth visiting. Primarily, it was built outside the city walls, on an area measuring 2910 square meters. The Khan school consists of one small and one big school chamber (constructed by Mohammad Taghi Khan and his son Ali Naghi Khan, respectively), one central courtyard and two symmetrical courtyards on its sides, surrounded by a two-storey building with 78 student chambers. The iconic feature of this school is its underground passage to the Mosalla School. Several phases of renovation have negatively affected the splendor and beauty of this building. Today its library is home to about 11000 precious books and 133 manuscripts.
