Tabatabei House

Reviewed By Queenscout - Berkshire, England

Something of a Tardis: entering via the narrow front door and corridors gives no hint of the splendid courtyards and ponds within. Supposedly built as a home suitable for object of the builder's affection, the daughter of another wealthy merchant of Kashan, it did the trick and they were married and lived for many years in this magnificent building.
There are cool courtyards with ponds, elegant stained glass windows and superbly detailed stone carvings. Not to be missed!

Abbasian House

Reviewed By Iolanda A - Lisbon, Portugal

I believed I had seen everything there was to be seen after having visited three historic houses in the Kashan area but I was wrong because the Abbasi House with its numerous courtyards connected by secret passage-ways and the amazingly beautiful mirror-like ceiling in one of the chambers was a "gem" to be explored. The restaurant in its premises is worth being visited as well as the food and the service are second to none and the prices not too high.

Was built nearly 130 years ago by a famous merchant named Haj Seyed Ja`far Borujerdi from Natanz, who imported goods from Borujerd in Lurestan province.
The construction date (1293 A.H.) can still be seen on the covered inscription of the building, completion of which required 18 years of work by tens of labors, master printers, and architects.

Bagh-e Fin Garden

Reviewed By jajavalB - Bangkok

this green lushy garden with marvelous water irrigation system, presenting with orifice with water coming out all time. By the central green garden on Rightside, it's small museum that exhibits local arts, costumes, utensils, inscriptions. it's small and need to pay admission fee so you can skip it .the highlight there is Hammam which is on the wall on the left of central garden. it's long line of visitors during Nowruz but it worths visiting, there are exhibits how people dress and do in this bath .it takes no more than 10 minutes until exit near the main garden exit.

The merchant houses make the journey and stop in Kashan very worthwhile. This has a remarkable courtyard setting which is surrounded by intricately decorated flanks which makes it extremely photogenic. Entrance fee of 50000R and sometimes there is a guide on hand.
Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Underground City of Nushabad

Reviewed By Karin V - Melbourne, Australia

After a lot of mosques and palaces this was something different and really interesting. They certainly were clever people.
At the end of the tunnels there is a cafe where the coffee is a must. A combination of coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, sugar and cardamom brewed on hot sand for 5 hours.
