Abbasian House, Kashan
(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
A prime example of the city's 18th-century residential architecture, Abbasian House belonged to a notable member of the clergy. Fairly well restored, today the house serves as a museum and features six courtyards, a garden pool, a large domed porch, secret passageways, and many chambers. Admire the intricate stucco work and stone carvings adorning its walls and ceilings--one of which resembles the starry sky with its mosaic of mirror pieces. Notice the distinct door knockers, which announced male and female guests with the different sounds they make. Work out when and for how long to visit Abbasian House and other Kashan attractions using our handy Kashan vacation builder.

  • This House is not the most beautiful of the traditional houses, the most extensive with variously indoor gardens. A few places are still to see original documents.

  • The Abbasid House is a historic house built in the mid-19TH century by the bourgeoisie of Kashan.Esta House, which has 5,000 m2 above ground and 2,000 m2 below ground, needed 20 years to be completed. It runs without any indication of any kind. It is completely empty. You can buy a combined ticket to visit also the Tabatatei House and the House Bouroujerdi, at a cost of 350,000 rials. This House, like other historical places in Iran, are in a clearly improved condition.

  • Another nice remains disproportionate dimensions. A trip back in time. Pools provide both freshness and appeasement.
