Nashtifan is a town located in the southern parts of Khorasan Razavi province, in Iran. One of the main characteristics of the area is the strong winds that blow across it, causing it to initially be called Nish Toofan or “storm’s sting”. As a result of the natural elements in the area, windmills have been part of the region’s industrial creativity and have been used throughout many centuries.
