Sar Agha Sayed (Also spelled as Sar Aqa seyyed) (Persian: سرآقاسید) is a famous historical Iranian village in "Chahar Mahal-o-Bakhtiari" Province. The historical Sar Aqa Seyyed village is located in Miankuh-e Moguyi Rural District, in the Central District of Kuhrang County, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province of Iran.

Negareh: Sar Aqa Seyyed is a mountainous village that is about 130 km from Shahrekord and 200 km from Isfahan. Characterized by a peculiar reddish hue, the village is one of the oldest in Iran, attracting numerous native and foreign tourists year-round, especially during traditional feasts and ceremonies.

How to get there:
1- Go to Baihaghi or South terminal of buses in Tehran,
2- Take a bus ticket to Shahr-e Kord.
3- Take a taxi from Shahr-e Kord to Chelgerd
4- Take a 4wd vehicle from Chelgerd to the village (About 40 km off road so 4wd vehicle is a best choice)
- No airport less than 100 km

Best time to visit is late spring and early summer. This village is out of the routine tourist paths in Iran and you should arrange a driver/guide for one full day.
People are so nice and they live completely traditionally. The costumes especially women's are so beautiful and the architecture of village is brilliant.
- In social media, this image of Sar Aqa Seyyed has been posted many times with the title "Masuleh", another historical village in Gilan Province of Iran. Although they look alike, they are different but many people may confuse Masuleh with Palangan, Sar Aqa Seyyed, and other look-alike apartment villages of Iran.
