Charming Kashan: A Photo Journey

Delightful surprises were hidden behind the tall mud-brick walls of the desert town of Kashan. Rich, detailed stucco decorations and stained glass windows of large traditional houses built by wealthy merchants many years ago were set amongst tranquil gardens of roses, pomegranates and pools of water.

In another location was a wonderfully sumptuous bathhouse and on the outskirts of town the beautiful Fin Gardens.

Charming Kashan proved once again that there is so much more to Iran than you can ever imagine. Follow me on a photo journey to discover the charms of Kashan for yourself.

    Kashan wasn’t even part of my itinerary when I first went to Iran about 12 years ago, but I ended up there anyway, and I’m so so glad. Those gardens and buildings are simply divine, and your photos really draw the colours and details out!! My pictures are starting to fade, sadly… but the memories are still so vivid <3 I'd simply love to go back there. Thanks for bringing back so many happy memories.
