Patrol in Khosf(South Khorasan province)

South Khorasan province is one of the best provinces for travel and experience, despite its many attractions. Near Birjand, the capital of the province, the old city of Khosf is one of those places with a history that is recommended to visit before going to Birjand.. The following travelogue is the result of a short walk of several hours in Khosf.

The aerial view of Khosaf, the old part northwest of Goab, is clear.

After a 15-hour bus ride from Tehran, we arrived in the historic city of Khosf at 7 am on the second of November. In the cool morning air we waited for the sun to reduce our lethargy a little. I asked the driver to keep us at the beginning of Khosf, where our friends had arrived earlier than us and were waiting for us..
Birjand road passes through Khosf and old Khosf is in the north of the boulevard and new Khosf is in the south of the main boulevard.
I had little knowledge about Khosf and decided to see and then research. We left the morning stop at a point north of the boulevard. Visiting points could be estimated almost from the map.

The pit space was like a big one in front of us and for Seeing Khosf, we had to go around it. The name of this large pit “گوآب” Is that a Kharin Bar In the spring of 2009, due to continuous rain, it was flooded here It was a kind of attraction. Now the example is an empty lake and old Khosf Bar It is the beach.

From the street next to Goab, make your way to the sloping castle we did. A castle that is just a place and a wall and unfortunately there is a shop inside! نگهداری و حتی فکر به نگهداری از آثار قدیمی و پیشینه منطقه در کشورمان جایگاهی ندارد. Similar to the situation I saw in the Qajar caravanserai of Aliabad, Qom, in the worst way It was captured and it was disturbing to see inside. Construction of Khosf Castle to the era Afshari returns.

Old Khosf is small and its historical monuments can be seen on foot. Disappointed, we left the castle for the Grand Mosque. We asked from the alleys to the top of Hosseinieh Baladeh. پلکان دلنشینش در بیرون ساختمان ما را به سمت سقف با گنبدهای کوچکی می برد و از بالای بام نه چندان بلندش منظره جالبی از خوسف به نمایش می گذاشت.

با ادامه دادن مسیر در کوچه قدیمی که به مانند همه کوچه های قدیمی حال و هوای خوبی دارد به ساختمانی رسیدیم که حالا دفتر میراث فرهنگی بود.
بالاخره به مسجد جامع رسیدیم و در حیاط آن قدمی زدیم. مسجد تک ایوانی است و در مورد پیشینه آن روایت ها مختلف است.

مسیر را ادامه دادیم و به عنوان آخرین نقطه بازدید به سمت مقبره ابن حسام خوسفی رفتیم. در مسیر از جلوی ساختمان کتابخانه خوسف رد شدیم که در نوع خودش جالب بود. ابن حسام شاعر بوده و در قرن هشتم ه.ق می زیسته است.

مقصد بعدی سفر ما بیرجند بود و برای رفتن از خوسف به سمت بیرجند از مینیبوس های خطی استفاده کردیم.
