Kharanaq (Persian: خرانق, also Romanized as Kharānaq, Kharāneq, and Kharānoq; also known as Khowrāneq and ((means land of sun))Khurūnaq) is a village in Rabatat Rural District, Kharanaq District, Ardakan County, Yazd Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 433, in 133 families. The town and its minaret have become a minor tourist attraction. Kharanaq, which was known as a world and historical village, was introduced as the 23rd city of Yazd province on July 6, 2020. Driving 70 k.m to the north of Yazd, we reach Kharanagh/ Kharanaq. This 4500-year-old city is surrounded by mountains on one side and desert from the other. Many buildings in Kharanaq/ Kharanagh are completely collapsed and ramshackle, but among them, the remaining mosque from the Qajar period, a shaking minaret from 17th and the caravanserai of the city have been reconstructed and can be visited.
