Birjand is the capital of South Khorasan province in Iran. I visited Birjand in April 2023.
Birjand, a hidden gem in Iran, captivated my senses with its enchanting blend of history and culture. As I wandered through the bustling bazaars, the vibrant hues of Persian carpets and delicate handwoven textiles mesmerized me. The imposing Jameh Mosque, adorned with intricate mosaics, stood as a testament to the city’s rich heritage. I marveled at the ancient Birjand citadel and Akbariyeh Garden a UNESCO world heritage site. The warmth of Birjand’s people and their gracious hospitality left an indelible mark on my heart, reminding me that the true essence of travel lies in the connections we make along the way.
