Shazdeh Garden

Reviewed By TC0241 - Lautrec, France

Classic Persian garden with wonderful flowing Fountains, Rose's and plenty of trees for shade. I always find it amazing that as long as they have a water source everything grows well.
The place was originally built in 1850 and sort of reconstructed in 1890(ish)
Will give you plenty of ideas for your own little plot.
Enjoy the tranquility and chat with the locals who will be out in force.

Visit Kalouts

One of the most exciting geomorphological structures of Lut is the special bumps called Kalut which is the biggest natural clod structure in the world; they are the most unique structures in the desert. Kalouts are similar to parallel tunnels which are positioned from northwest to northeast. Kaloots are 80 km in width, 145 km in length, and in some cases 120 meters high

Ali and Shiva are two very professional guides. Both are very knowledgeable and happy to share (fluent English). The tour was great!
After a sceneric drive, Ali showed us the inventive 'ganats', a caravansarei and told us all about it. The most beautiful sunset at the Kaluts and small picnic underneath a sky full of stars, the next early morning sunrise at other Kaluts, breathtaking views! After breakfast Ali drove us to the Canyon for a refeshing swim together with dr fish.
First we had no plans for Kerman, but after Reading the reviews of visit Kaluts, we decided to go....and it was a good idea... Put Visit Kaluts on your bucketlist! What a great experience!

Fathabad Garden

Reviewed By Eqbal V - Kerman, Iran

This is an old resort belonging to a local landlord, in the middle of nowhere in Kerman suburbs. The architecture is amazing and eye catching. You enter the mantion from the south seeing a long shallow pool of water ending up to the mantion. I have gone there a few times and it's been quite windy because of the open surroundings and young short trees which do not resist against the wind. So in cold seasons wear warm cloths specially a hat.
There is a restaurant and as a cafe which serve food and child and hot drinks too. Definitely with a visit.

Harandi Museum

Hidden behind high walls just off the main Beheshti strip, the mansion in this peaceful garden was once the Kerman governor’s residence and now houses the small but well explained Archaeology Museum and Traditional Musical Instruments Museum . Built in 1911, the building was later bought by progressive businessman Abol Ghasem Harandi, who brought electricity to Kerman. On his death Harandi bequeat

We only visited the music museum. It houses quite a large collection of instruments but English description is only limited to the name of the instrument. We can hardly get any further understanding.
If you are really interested in Iranian traditional musical instruments, you should visit the private music museum in Isfahan. That one is way better.

There are much nicer and friendlier bazaars in Isfahan and Tabriz, but this bazaar is still worth visiting. Unfortunately there wasn't much in the way of local handicrafts to interest tourists.

Sanati Contemporary Arts Museum

Reviewed By Megan K - San Francisco, California

The place is now renamed to Contemporary Arts Museum much to the chagrin on this city because Mr. Sanati happened to be a well-known multi faceted painter, sculpturer, philantropist. Visiting this place brought a new perspective of Kerman to our trip where we enjoyed paintings of famous Iranian painters such as Kamal-ol-molk (probably the most important one), Bahman Mohassess (Documentary: Fifi is howling from happiness), Hooshang Seyhoon and even a sculpture from Rodin!

Kerman Tours

Reviewed By Daniel K

My girlfriend and I went together with Arash on a trip to the desert. It was awesome! He took care of everything. We had a fun ride with him to get there, stayed in a lovely ecolodge and then went after a couple of hours of sleep deeper into the desert to watch the stars and the sunrise. He showed us other really cool places along the way and we learned a lot. Also we had a delicious breakfast later at the lodge. Very cool and fun tour guide! I can totally recommend his tours!
