Visible from the main road this Timurid robat has an impressive tower-flanked exterior that would make a great movie set. The less exciting domed interior displays a small selection of pottery and an incongruous table-tennis table. It was renovated as headquarters for the Binalud new-town extension, a vast housing development for workers of the Iran Khodro car plant 3km away. That’s been shelved for now, sparing the quaint mud-homes of tiny Fakhr Davood village. No taxis available here.
