    It is not the best Bazaar in Iran, but has delicious corners. Magnificent ceiling decorations that seem normal to them because they are accustomed to seeing them every day. Carpets of thousand shapes and colors and if you have chance some carpet repairer that eliminates the damage that the use has occurred with skillful hands

    Visit. In the whole of Iran I found this 1 of the most beautiful and original bazaars. Nice carpet area and delicious pressure in the evening. Is addressed by anyone and there is particularly of interest for Westerners.

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.
