Sar Agha Seyed village is one of the most beautiful natural tourist attractions in Miankuh-e Moguyi Rural District, in the Central District of Kuhrang County, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province, Western Iran.

The village is named after the Agha Seyed shrine.

At the 2006 census, its population was 1,360 with about 208 families but currently sits at approximately 3,000.

The village is populated by hardworking Lurs (Iranian people living in the mountains of western Iran) who live on husbandry and agriculture.

Sar Agha Seyed is known for its unusual architecture. Its interconnected buildings are built into the surrounding mountain. The roofs of the buildings serve as courtyards and streets of the buildings above.

Most of the homes have no windows and only one door.

Because of the similarity of architecture, Sar Aqa Seyed village is called The Masuleh of Zagros (An ancient village on the slope of Zagros also in Iran).

Many tourists from far and near explore this village for its nomadic setting.

Unfortunately, Sar Agha Seyed village lacks any development infrastructure such as asphalted roads or communication facilities.
