  • This House is a part of the most beautiful houses of the past, where Kashan was a city shopping hinge between Isfahan and Tehran and on the Silk Road. We discover a beautiful and especially refined architecture with all Persian art has more beautiful: stucco moldings, inlay work, stained glass, etc... This is a magnificent and unavoidable

  • Beautiful villa with embossed plaster ornaments, mirrors and stained glass Windows. Internal gardens typical of Iranian architecture, where the exterior of the houses is very simple and the interior is beautiful.

  • Very beautiful, definitely a must see.
  • Really nice but almost no English descriptions and heavy entrance Fee for foreigners.
  • I can't believe that people actually lived in such a magnificent place.
  • Unique attraction of Kashan. Never the less you don't have much to c in Kashan. I love old houses of Kashan as hotels that I recommend you to stay in those places.
  • enjoy the architecture
