Khan Theological School established by Muhammad Taghi Khan, one of the famous and benevolent rulers of Yazd, in 1772 in the bazaar district and in the historical context of the city of Yazd. It is built with two floors on an area of about 2910 square meters, in three courtyards, two of which are symmetrical and one is in the center of the school.
The architectural style of this school, which catches the eye of every tourist, dates back to the late Zandiyeh period and the early Qajar period and is an excellent historical legacy for Yazd. It is visited by many domestic and foreign tourists during school vacations.
One of the interesting features of this school is the underground corridor which connects the Khan School with the Mosalla Yazd School and demonstrates that since old times the teachers and students of these two schools have been in contact with each other in this way.
The architecture of the Khan Theological School
This school has been registered in the National Registry of Historical Monuments of Iran and is built on a plot of land of about 2910 meters in three courtyards whose architectural style dates back to the late Zandi and early Qajar periods. This school has two floors, with 78 rooms and the historical architecture of the rooms is still preserved.
The Khan Theological School has an underground corridor leading to the Mosalla School in Yazd, and through it, the teachers and students of the two schools keep in touch with each other. This shows that in the past the religious teachers had good practice with each other, and for this reason, they did not separate schools, and only the names of these schools were different. Although this corridor still exists, it is not in use at this time.
Visits by tourists
Due to the historical antiquity and special architectural style of the Khan Theological School, Iranian and foreign tourists can visit this historical, religious and cultural complex of Yazd during non-class hours. The history of Yazd states that this school is very popular. The rooms of this school were also the site of poetry by famous Yazd poets such as Taraz and Gazayi Yazdi. Almost half a century later, in March 2021, the doors of this building were opened to the public, travelers, and tourists on the Nowruz vacations.
