About Kashan

On your journey through Iran, be careful not to overlook Kashan as many tourists do; a green bubble, contrasting the surrounding desert. The original people of the city lived in Tepe Sialk around 3000 BC. In the past, Kashan was very famous for its tile production. Today, the city draws tourists in through its historical houses, which used to be owned by noblemen and aristocrats. If you want to take home one-of-a-kind souvenirs, Kashan’s fantastic bazaar is your friend, there you can find Kashan’s famous herbal drinks (called Araghiyat). If you’re looking to get out of the city, don’t forget to check out the natural sites unique to this province, including Maranjab desert and Fin garden. Where to eat? Morshedi House Cafe’ & Restaurant, and Avgoon Experience Café are on the top 10.
