Trough Mozaffarid, it was once the capital of Iran for a period of time. Mozaffari kingdom originated from Meybod where the first king was born. One of the oldest castles in Iran is in Meybod, named Narin ghaleh, which dates back from the Sasanid. Chaparkhaneh and Karvansaraye Abbasi are some other examples of the historical buildings from Safavid era.
Many important major poets, sufis, clergymen, ploiticians arose from Meybod. Meybodi, the author of “Kashf-ol-Asrar”, Grand Ayatollah Haeri, Hossein Makki and many others lived in Maybod, to name a few.
Unfortunately some of its historical points were demolished by local authorities who did not understand the archeological values. Yet, it hosts many tourists from every corner of the world everyday. See Meybod on the map.
