Sarbaz; The Little India Inside Iran

If you are interested in traveling to India, but you do not have enough money or time, you can travel to city of Sarbaz in Sistan and Baluchestan province, south-eastern Iran.

Sarbaz, one of the most beautiful cities in Sistan and Baluchestan, has a population of 186,165, the majority of whom live in rural areas along Sarbaz River.

When you enter the city, palm trees and grassy fields grab your attention as if a small paradise is built in the heart of the dry and underdeveloped province.

Sarbaz is very much similar to India when it comes to climate, food culture and clothing; therefore, it is widely known in Iran as the Little India and the City of 72 Nations.

The city’s weather in the coldest season of the year is quite like springtime, and you can rest in the shade of the palm trees.

The climate variability in Sarbaz provides conditions for planting and harvesting different fruits such as dates, tree melon, banana, jujube, mango, sapodilla, guava, and citrus types like lemon, orange, and mandarin.

The existence of green palm trees and rivers in Sarbaz make it a suitable habitat for breeding fish and crocodiles. The locals of Sarbaz call their dwarf crocodiles “Gando”.

The use of traditional agricultural tools next to arts like needlework and architecture reflect the preservation of traditional values by the people of this city.

If you wish to see beautiful houses, special decorations and varied shapes on the exterior of the houses, travel to Sarbaz and see different traditional designs on the exterior walls of this region.
