Abbasian House, Kashan

3.9
#2 of 8 in Museums in Isfahan Province
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • A beautiful building with so many parts that it if loses. Opportunities, large openings on the courtyards where fountains sing. Good! The stairs are very narrow and uneven but we forgive architecture. Everything else is splendid.

Where to stay in Kashan

As with many of Iran's cities, tourism in Kashan has not yet reached its full potential and its range of accommodations seems surprisingly sparse. The majority of places to stay sit within walking distance of Agha Bozorg Mosque, with a few additional options lining Amir Kabir Street. Most options come in the form of guesthouses or simple hotels, but a handful of traditional-style luxury accommodations offer a more special experience. Due to restrictions on foreign credit cards, you might have difficulties reserving you room ahead of time.
