You can find this place just after the Amir Chaqmargh square. These strongmen ranges from the young to the old and they show their battle-readiness by swinging heavy clubs, doing fancy footwork and doing sets with bows. There is a drummer/ singer who channels the...More

It is very nice to see this sport in this place. The music is so good and the men do the sport very professionally.

Only for if you like watching average skilled gymnastics.. some push-ups and swinging with the bats.. no handstands or flips or anything cool.. ah well maybe i expected too much.. btw tea and coffee costs as much as the entrance fee (50.000 rials)

Impressive "sports" training session. Full with traditions, and they really seem to do it for themselves, not for the tourists. In Nov 2017 they had a session at 4.30pm, 5.30pm and 7pm. 50.000 Rial entrance, absolutely worth it. ps: Don't miss the down part of...More
