Zainabad Yazd Mehrizad Jashn


Based on old (Kadmi) calendar, a group of Zoroastrians in Zainabad , Yazd celebrated Mehrizad
(Mehrgan) Jashn on 31stJan-4Feb 2009.

This usually empty old village of Yazd gets crowded during these days.
Part of tradition, they visit every house and after remebering and mentioning names of passed away residents of the house and being served with food and drinks by the owner, they collect the fund to maintain the local Dar-e Mehr. This ceremony is accompanied with music and dance.
