Sarakhs is both a city and also a 8407 km-square district of Razavi Khorasan Province, Iran. Sarakhs town was once a stopping point along the Silk Road, and in its 11th century heyday had many libraries and a famous school of architects. Much of the original city site is now just across the border at Saraghs in Turkmenistan. According to Khorasan Miras, in 1997 the population of the district was 73,604.
