The weather of spring is becoming gradually warmer and it is the best time for travelling to the western provinces of the country. If you decided to experience a fresh, green and cool weekend in an isolated and spectacular village, we suggest you to visit Zeyd village, one of the environs of Elam. This is a village which is considered as one of the most spectacular western villages of the country for its various historical relics and wheat storerooms of large rocks.
When you arrive to Zeyd, vast and incredible valleys of this village is the first thing that welcomes your arrival and invites you to visit the spectacular nature of this village. In these valleys which are 5 or 6, you would see rocks facing each other in which hearts, storerooms have been built for storing wheat. You would see other historical storerooms next to these storerooms, where were allocated to salt storage and were build a little further than wheat storerooms.
These storerooms have been designed in a way that can preserve wheat for three years, without being rotten or destroyed. There are 30 storerooms in this village and the most important incentive of Zeyd people for building such storerooms were preserving wheat seeds and keeping them safe from bandits’ hands.
The climax of construction and usage of these storerooms relates to the Islamic era, particularly the Safavid and Qajar dynasties.
