The historical caravanserai of Yam, located in the city of Marand in north-western Iran, once used to be an important place on the way of Silk Road.

The Yam caravanserai is the largest of its type in the north-west of Iran, and one of the most important historical and tourist buildings of the country.

The caravanserai is located 54 kilometres from Tabriz along the road to Marand. It had been damaged due to severe climatic conditions; however, it was rebuilt and revived by cultural heritage restorers in recent years.

Also called the caravanserai of Payam, the building dates back to the Mongol and Safavid eras; and is now one of the 999 Shah-Abbasi style caravanserais in Iran which are open to public.

What follows are ISNA’s photos of Yam caravanserai:
