The abandoned part is completely made of mud-bricks from 1000 years ago with multi-floor houses, tunnels, passages and amazing allies inside. Also, there is a renovated mosque from the Qajar era with a shaking minaret. Another monument next to the village is a Savaid Carvansarai with an amazing structure.
