A plan envisaging the touring of the old quarter of the Esfahak village in the city of Tabas in central Iran has found its way to the final stage of the “To Do Award” contest.

Iran (IMNA) - “The Esfahak village has advanced to the final stage of the To Do Award festival,” said Ali Shariati, the deputy head of the Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Department of South Khorasan province.

He said the village was shortlisted after a German evaluator of the To Do Award event visited the village last week.

“This village is one of the seven finalists of the To Do Award contest,” he added.

He referred to a 1978 earthquake which struck the village, and said, “After the quake, a new village was built next to the site of the old village, which has now been repaired and provided with eco-lodges.”

Shariati said the village has old public bathhouses and numerous handicrafts.

The official added, "local cultural heritage department has also helped to have Esfahak registered on the list of national heritage sites regarding its architecture."

Esfahak is a village situated about 38 km away from Tabas County in South Khorasan Province in Iran. It is a unique tourist attraction that reflects the rich Iranian history, architecture and culture.

 It has an intact nature and decent weather that is perfect for growing various crops. When you enter this village, you can touch the nature and history. Old brick houses were often built on platforms with domed roofs and small windows.
