During the Kashan visit in 1993, the chairman of UNESCO remarked: “Kashani architects are the greatest alchemists of history. They could make gold out of dust”. Yet, many travelers opt to skip Kashan tour on their way between Tehran, Esfahan and Yazd, and miss this amazing oasis city on the edge of the Dasht-e Kavir as one of the best deserts of Iran. Atmospheric covered bazaars and Saray, and a cluster of architecturally significant 19th-century houses are not meant to be bypassed. On the other hand, desert nights and extraordinary ancient village of Abyaneh in red color with its Zoroastrian inhabitants are a lifetime experience!
