Nashtifan: City of Windmills
Nashtifan is a town located in the southern parts of Khorasan Razavi province 20 kilometers from Khaf and 30 kilometers from the border with Afghanistan.
One of the main characteristics of the area is the strong winds that blow across it, causing it to initially be called Nish Toofan (storm's sting), HistoricalIran reported.
As a result of the natural elements in the area, windmills have been part of the region's landscape and have been used throughout many centuries.
