Kharanagh is one of the scenic villages of Yazd province, which is located at a distance of about 70 km from Yazd city. This village is famous for its beautiful old texture and old houses. The houses of this village are nested in some cases on several floors, which is an interesting example of the architecture of the past of this land.There are many artifacts left in the village, some of which are still relatively intact and usable, including the old caravansary.

One of the beautiful structures in this village, which is also known as its symbol; It is a tall minaret that is wonderfully built and still intact. This minaret is a mosque and was built for worship ceremonies and call to prayer, but it was probably also used for observation and military purposes. The minaret of Kharanagh Mosque, like the minaret of Isfahan, is built in a way that it can move. This feature makes it more durable and can withstand large earthquakes.

Other monuments left in this village include its old bridge, which has remained beautiful and strong after many years.
