Kerman

About Kerman

Although Kerman is the biggest province in Iran, it is surprisingly unknown to many. If you are at all interested in fossils, deserts, or historical sites, you should not skip this one. Shazdeh Garden, Ganjali Khan Complex, and Jabalieh (Rock Dome) are just a few of the many historical sites there. Kerman also has the perfect access to Iran’s most popular sandy deserts. But this city isn’t all sun and heat. In fact, it houses some of Iran’s lushest gardens, including Harandy Garden Museum and Fath-Abad Garden. And of course, no history buff should miss Arg-e Bam and Rayen Castle, both among the biggest adobe structures on earth. Need a hearty lunch? Keykhosro House and Vakil Tea House are two great options. For desert, we suggest you try Kolompeh, a yummy pastry with dates and walnut filling popular in Kerman.
