Yazd

Yazd is a city located on a plain with the same name, on the central plateau of Iran. This city, located between the Shirkouh and Kharaneg Mountains, is bordered by the cities of Meybod and Ardakan to the north, the cities of Taft and Abarkuh to the south, the city of Isfahan to the west, and the cities of Ardakan and Bafq to the east.”
The city of Yazd has been named differently at different times; names like Isatitis, Izad Tis, Shahr-e-Izad, Kase, Yazdan Shahr, Dar Al-Abadeh, Yazdan Gerd and so forth.The name Kase can be found in books like “Fārsnāma” (the book of Fars) by Ibn al-Balkhi and “The History of Yazd” by Ahmad ibn Hussein ibn Ali Kateb.Kase means small. The reason for this naming is the small size of the city of Kase, comparing to Isatis that was located near Kase and was bigger than it was. However, there are other opinions that are overlooked for brevity.
