Sabbat covered passages of Yazd

Sabbat is a unique architectural feature of Iranian desert cities and particularly Yazd. With their vaulted ceilings, these passages combine light and shade to create warmth and coolness in the passageways, helped the uniformity of monuments and solidified the city’s old fabric. Often the doors of a few homes open into a Sabat, which is an important socio-cultural factor as it creates a gathering place for residents, giving them a sense of community and belonging.
