The village is bounded by a mountain in the back and an open plain in the front. It is one of the oldest villages of Yazd. The old cemeteries in Shavaz or the high stronghold in the village all indicate its old age, according to ifpnews. com.

The inscriptions found in nearby mountains also date back to 12,000 years ago.
