Amir Chakhmaq Square in the historical context of Yazd has become the main symbol of this city. That is, by the name of Yazd, the high wall of Amir Chakhmaq with its minarets comes to mind.
But is the Amir Chakhmaq building a historical mosque or something like Hoseinieh? The mosque-like mansion and the minarets of Amir Chakhmaq, which are only 130 years old, are nothing but a wall built in the style of historic mosques, but of course it is not a mosque.
Amir Chakhmaq was one of the rulers of the Timurid government who, together with his wife Seti Fatemeh, built a hoseinieh with a mosque and water reservoir in this part of Yazd seven hundred years ago. The tomb of Seti Fatemeh is now located in a side of this square in front of Panj Badgir water reservoir.
But the current wall of Amir Chakhmaq mansion was actually built in the Qajar period instead of the northern wall of the previous Hoseiniyah, and that Hoseiniyah has now become a square known as Amir Chakhmaq Square and is the center of religious mourning ceremonies in Yazd.
