Islamic architecture including the Jamea Mosque and many other works and art forms go back over 1000 years.

Marco Polo wrote an account of visiting the city in 1272. He titles the city: "the noble city of Yazd".

A Zoroastrian Fire Temple in Yazd holds a traditional fire which has been kept alight by Zoroastrian priests, continuously for over 1100 years.

Yazd was long a centre of Zoroastrian culture, though today many Zoroastrians have moved to the capital Tehran or abroad. The Zoroastrians have their own language called Dari.
