Kashan Cities

Kashan is a large city in western Iran with a population of 250,000. With its origins dating back to late Neolithic times (approx. 7,000 BCE), Kashan is one of the oldest human settlements in the world. Archaeological remains of artifacts and buildings dating back 9,000 years can still be found in the city.

 

The city grew to become one of the most important trading centers of Iran between the 12th and 14th centuries. Following a gradual decline in population, the city was turned into a vacation spot for Safavid kings; you planted several gardens all over the city.

 

A devastating earthquake in the late 18th century destroyed much of the city and the remained sparsely populated for the next half-century. However, the population slowly returned, spurred by the city’s popularity as a vacation spot among Iran’s elites.

 

Today, Kashan is the capital of Kashan County and an important manufacturing center. Though barely known outside Iran, it remains an important tourist center within the country.

Location

Kashan is about 150 miles south of Tehran and is easily accessible by road. is the first of the large oases along the Qom-Kerman road which runs along the edge of the central deserts of Iran. A highway connects Kashan to Tehran via Qom. Kashan is just 2.5 hours from Tehran. Also it's accessible through Na’in and Esfahan. Both the first class and the second class train connecting Bandar Abbas and Tehran stop in Kashan.

History

The etymology of the city name comes from the Kasian, the original inhabitants of the city, whose remains are found at Tapeh Sialk dating back 9,000 years; later this was changed to "Kashian", hence the town name. Between the 12th and the 14th centuries Kashan was an important center for the production of high quality pottery and tiles. In modern Persian, the word for a tile (kashi) comes from the name of the town.

Kashan is cited in the neighborhood of two of highest peaks of Karkas chain, Mount Gargash to the southwest of Kashan (the home of Iran national observatory, the largest astronomical telescope of Iran) and Mount Ardehaal in the west of Kashan, also known as "Damavand of Kashan" and the highest peak of Ardehaal mountains (end part of Karkas chain in central Iran).

Archeological

discoveries in the Sialk Hillocks which lie 4 km west of Kashan reveal that this region was one of the primary centers of civilization in pre-historicages. Hence Kashan dates back to the Elamite period of Iran. The Sialk Ziggurat still stands today in the suburbs of Kashan after 7,000 years.

 

The artifacts uncovered at Sialk reside in the Louvre in Paris and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Iran's National Museum.

By some accounts although not all Kashan was the origin of the three wise men who followed the star that guided them to Bethlehem to witness the nativity of Jesus, as recounted in the Bible.[3] Whatever the historical validity of this story, the attribution of Kashan as their original home testifies to the city's prestige at the time the story was set down.

Abu-Lu'lu'ah/Pirouz Nahāvandi, the Persian soldier who was enslaved by the Islamic conquerors and eventually assassinated the caliph Umar al-Khattab in AH 23 (643/4 CE), reportedly fled to Kashan after the assassination and lived there some years before being finally caught and executed. His tomb is one of Kashan's conspicuous landmarks (see gallery below).

Sultan Malik Shah I of the Seljuk dynasty ordered the building of a fortress in the middle of Kashan in the 11th century. The fortress walls, called Ghal'eh Jalali still stand today in central Kashan.

Kashan was also a leisure vacation spot for Safavi Kings. Bagh-e Fin (Fin Garden), specifically, is one of the most famous gardens of Iran. This beautiful garden with its pool and orchards was designed for Shah Abbas I as a classical Persian vision of paradise. The original Safavid buildings have been substantially replaced and rebuilt by the Qajar dynasty although the layout of trees and marble basins is close to the original. The garden itself however, was first founded 7000 years ago alongside the Cheshmeh-ye-Soleiman. The garden is also notorious as the site of the murder of Mirza Taghi Khan known as Amir Kabir, chancellor of Nasser-al-Din Shah, Iran's king in 1852.

 House of Borujerdis

The earthquake of 1778 leveled the city of Kashan and all the edifices of Shah Abbas Safavi, leaving 8000 casualties. But the city started afresh and has today become a focal tourist attraction via the numerous large houses from the 18th and 19th centuries, illustrating the finest examples of Qajari aesthetics.

Visit the Agha Bozorg Mosque

This beautiful mosque is often called one of the best examples of 19th century Iranian-Qajari architecture.

Discover the 5,000 years old remains of the Tepe Sialk Ziggurat

Tepe Sialk is the common name for the remains of a large Ziggurat built by the Sialk people some 5,000 years ago. You can easily access it from the heart of the city, though you’ll need special permission to see the unearthed artifacts (locals recommend bribing the officials, though that’s probably not the best idea as a westerner).

 

Explore the gorgeous architecture of Kashan Bazaar

The oldest bazaar in Kashan housed countless shops, inns and restaurants for hundreds of years.

The shops still remain, some of them going back dozens of generations.

The most stunning feature of the bazaar is its absolutely stunning ceiling.

Experience traditional Persian architecture at the Tabatabaei House, Ameri House, and Abbasi House

Kashan was a favorite vacation spot for Iran’s noblemen and wealthy traders in the 18th and 19th century, a number of whom built massive vacation homes in traditional Iranian style.

While many of these houses were destroyed in earthquakes in the late 18th century, some survived, and some were rebuilt over the years. The most prominent among these are the Ameri House, the Abbasi House and the Tabatabaei House, all of which have now been turned into public museums.

 

Tabatabaei House

See the stunning tile-work in Sultan Amir Ahmad Bathhouse

Kashan’s might as a trading hub was built on the expertise of its craftsmen in creating tiles and rugs. The former can still be see in the stunning tile-work in the beautiful Sultan Amir Ahmad Bathhouse, located near Sultan Amir shrine.

 Walk through the vast Bagh-e-Fin Garden

Originally built in the late 16th century, Fin Garden is the oldest extant garden in Iran and is spread over 2.3 hectares. The garden was modified by several different rulers over the years, who used it as a vacation spot. Consequently, the garden boasts architectural elements from different periods of Iranian history.

It was added to the World Heritage Site list in 2012.

A rest house attached to the gardens

Enjoy a bowl of delicious khoresh-e-loobia

Tehran Cities

Overview and History

Tehran is the capital of Iran and Tehran Province. With a population of around 8.3 million and surpassing 14 million in the wider metropolitan area, Tehran is Iran's largest city and urban area, and the largest city in Western Asia.

In the 20th and 21st centuries, Tehran has been the subject of mass migration of people from all around Iran.

However, modern structures, notably Azadi (Freedom) Tower and the Milad Tower, have come to symbolism the city. Tehran is ranked 29th in the world by the population of its metropolitan area. Throughout Iran's history, the capital has been moved many times, and Tehran is the 32nd national capital of Iran although it has been Iran's capital for about 220 years. Although a variety of unofficial languages are spoken, roughly 99% of the population understand and speak Persian. The majority of people in Tehran identify themselves as Persians. In per-Islamic and early Islamic times, Tehran was an unimportant village and part of the area of present-day Tehran was occupied by Ray (which in the Avesta occurs in the form of Ragha), now a part of the city of Tehran, which took over its role after the destruction of Ray by the Mongols in the early 13th century.

Getting There

"Mehrabad" airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by "Imam Khomeini" International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back. Transportation Tehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here. The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI. Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler.
