The night sky as seen from inside the historic Kharanaq Caravansary near Yazd, central Iran. The fisheye black & white image has captured the spring sky. Caravansary (a Persian word for the home of caravans) is an old time roadside inn, a place for travelers to rest and recover from the day's journey. While today they are mostly turned to museums and historic reserved monuments, in old time Caravanserais supported the flow of commerce, information, and people across the network of trade routes covering Asia, North Africa, and South-Eastern Europe.
