Sar-e Aqa Seyyed is a stepped village in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, south-western Iran.

Sar-e Aqa Seyyed is located in Mouguyi county, 45 km from Chelgard, the centre of Koohrang city.

There is only one path to access this village: a dirt road which is blocked after the first snowfall until next spring.

Its structure is stepped and “Bar-aftow”, that means “facing the sun” in the local language: the houses are built in a way that allows making the most of the sun’s heat during the winter.

The stairs of Sar-e Aqa Seyyed have stories to tell about the residents of each house! The stepped structure gives a special beauty to the village: the yard of an upper house is the roof of the house below. This space is used by people for drying fodder and vegetables, baking bread and making handicrafts.
