Description

Edit

This Yakhchal has conical shape, which is made of clay, and its height is 20 meters. The downward diameter is almost 10 meters, there is also a hole drilled in its floor to the depth of 2 to 3 m.
About 100 years ago, when climate change was not drastic and the heavy snowfall was common, people gathered and stored the snow in these Yakhchals to use it in summer and spring. Yakhchals often had two doors, one located in northern and the other in southern side. The northern door was used in winter and the southern door was used in summer; the pieces of ice were handed to people from this door. The architects claim, when Yakhchal was loaded, the pieces of ice were covered with a kind of herb, which was called “Piezo”.
