Kashan City Tour
Kashan is one the ancient centers of civilization in Iran, and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration if we say in the world. The presence of Tapeh Sialk, (Sialk Hills), an archeological site dating back to 9,000 years ago, on the outskirts of the city strongly supports our claim.
You may also have heard the name of Kashan because of the very delicate rugs produced by master artists in this city. So, if you are looking for Kashan carpets, you can go for a walk in the grand bazaar of Kashan, enjoy its unique architecture and buy the carpet you have been imagining for years.
However, these days Kashan has become the talk of the world because of its amazing traditional Iranian houses, mostly made during the Qajar period in the 19th century.
In addition, if you come to visit this city in spring, you would be able to attend the festival of Golab-giri, a ceremony in which rose flowers are collected, boiled and turned into a fragrant liquid, known as Golab, used as perfume or in cooking different foods and sweets.
So, if you are curious to visit this ancient city of culture, art and architecture, do not hesitate to book your Kashan City Tour with us at Irandelle Travel Agency.
Kashan is the ancient oasis of the central plateau. Its history, thanks to the archaeological mounds of Sialk, dates back to time immemorial.

In the 19th century, its hand-woven rugs exported the Kashan’s fame artistic through the world.
The city has suffered from so many climate changes and the loss of the carpet market, the basis of its industry, over the past decades.
