Meybod is a city in Yazd province which has a history of several thousand years. Narin Qaleh Meybod is a historical castle related to the Sassanid period. In addition, in the historical context of Meybod, some historical monuments related to the Safavid period are located close to each other. This historical complex includes a large caravanserai, a Chapar Khaneh (post system by horsemen), a historic reservoir with its windcatchers, as well as a very large brick Ice House (a hand-made glacier system).
Shah Abbasi Caravanserai of Meybod Historical Complex is a large caravanserai with a porch in the middle of the courtyard. Under the porch there is a small pool around which there are platforms for sitting and resting. Some of the rooms around the inn are dedicated to the supply and sale of Meybod handicrafts, such as Zillow and glazed dishes.
The brick Ice house of this historic complex is a very large hollow pit covered by a tall dome. In winter, this large hole was filled with a lot of ice to reserve and provide ice consumption to the people of Meybod in summer. The lofty dome of this handmade glacier and the small vent at the top of the dome caused all the heat of the glacier to be directed upwards and out, leaving the glacier always cold.
