  • You can understand the importance of these gardens in such hot and dusty surroundings. Unfortunately some of the water was not running but it was still an attractive relaxing place to visit.  more »

  • A very historical place. The history is displayed with timeline story in a theatrical form. You get a real feel of that time. A place worth visiting and understand the way living of then people of Iran.
  • We made a stop there on our way to Esfahan. It's a nice park with many trees and well visteted by many local people. The entrance ticket you habe to buy in a hole in the wall on the right of the entrance.
  • Nice garden with water. You can't seat in the garden. But there is a coffee shop.
  • My father was born in Kashan and he used to tell me that when he was a kid the family used to go to Bagheh Fin at the weekend and he used to swim there. Of course not allowed anymore. When I was 12 years old he took me there but we could just lookin through the doorway as we got there too late traveling from Tehran. There were man-made streams that came out of the garden and as it was going dark he insisted that we dip in there. We did and it was amazing. The owner of a household near the garden saw us. The stream ran through his house too and he invited us to go in. There was a little pool in the middle of his garden which was filled constantly by the water coming from the Fin. He invited us to dip in the little pool there. We thanked him but we didn't. That was 44 years ago in the summer of 1971.
  • Tragic back story behind a beautiful garden oasis. Absolutely love the patterns on the ceilings and the flowing water throughout the grounds.

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.
