میمند (شهربابک)

( Meymand, Kerman )

Meymand (Persian: ميمند, also Romanized as Maymand, Meimand and Maimand) is a village in, and the capital of, Meymand Rural District of the Central District of Shahr-e Babak County, Kerman province, Iran.

At the 2006 National Census, its population was 673 in 181 households. The following census in 2011 counted 214 people in 74 households. The latest census in 2016 showed a population of 105 people in 44 households.

Regarding the origin of these structures two theories have been suggested:

Living conditions in Meymand are harsh due to the aridity of the land and to high temperatures in summers and very cold winters. The local language contains many words from the ancient Sassanid and Pahlavi languages.

In 2005, Meymand was awarded the UNESCO-Greece Melina Mercouri International Prize for the Safeguarding and Management of Cultural Landscapes (about $20,000).
