Zurkhaneh Tour (paid walking tour)

Zurkhaneh Tour

Every Day (RESERVATION REQUIRED)

Tour Overview

Zurkhaneh, the home of strength, is a traditional Iranian-style gym where athletes exercise ancient sports or Varzesh-e Bastani. Zurkhaneh was the main place for wrestling until the mid-20th century. Then, it was replaced by international wrestling. After that, the other rituals have been continued by athletes. In the Zurkhaneh Tour, we try to show you one of the hidden parts of Iranian life.
This sport is a symbol of fairness and seniority. Athletes in Zurkhaneh are accompanied by a live traditional song and music by someone sitting at an elevated and decorated area named Morshed. He plays a drum and chants Persian poetry. This is one of the most attractive and unique parts of this sport.
When you enter Zurkhaneh through a low door, you need to bow in respect while entering. Gowd, a hexagonal sunken area with a one-meter depth, is in the middle of the room. The ancient gym takes place at the Gowd.
Athletes enter the Gowd with the permission of the Morshed.
