The historic city of Meybod lies 52km north of Yazd and contains the ruins of the Narin castle, a pre-Islamic mud brick structure, the oldest in Iran. The castle is located on a hill overlooking Meybod and was undergoing restoration at the time of visit. The earliest structures upon which the castle is built date back to the 3rd millenium BC. Other sights in Meybod include an ice house, used to store ice for use during the year, a restorated 300 year old post house and a wind tower.
