One of the attractions of Amir Chakhmaq historical cmplex in Yazd is a water reservoir and a Zurkhaneh (a place for ancient sports). There are five windcatchers on above the water reservoir that can be seen from Amir Chakhmaq square. Although the construction of this water reservoir is attributed to Amir Chakhmaq and the Timurid period, but apparently it was built in the Safavid period.
Recently, with the creation of an additional flat roof, the upper space of the dome of this reservoir has been separated from the bottom part of reservoir, and been dedicated for a zurkhaneh (The place for performing ancient sports).So tourists can visit the ancient sports in the Zurkhaneh area, and meantime by entering the beautiful stairs and corridors below, which revolve around the water reservoir, they will go down to the space of the water reservoir floor.
The ancient sport program in this zurkhaneh, which is performed every day at sunset, is extremely attractive to tourists.
Tourists sit on the platforms around the circular pit of the Zurkhaneh and watch the beautiful and active performance of this sport by the youth and heroes of Yazdi and listen to the epic song of Morshed songer and his drum. Usually, this zurkhaneh is full of tourists and spectators every day.
