    The best way to capture the ambience of this village is just to stroll around in its sleepy streets, enjoy details and the elderly women colourfully dressed

    There are a good number of old houses in Abyaneh, among them the homes of Gholam Nader Shah and Nayeb Hossein Kashi. In addition to the Zoroastrian fire- temple (from the Sassanian period) in the village, there are three castles, a pilgrimage site, three mosques named Hajatgah, Porzaleh, and Jam'e, all worth a careful visit. Altogether there are eight mosques in the village.The Hajatgah mosque, built next to a rock, dates from the early Safavid period, according to an inscription on top of its door. Inside the mosque there is a beautiful nocturnal prayer hall with wooden capital pillars.

    Porzaleh mosque, built during the Ilkhanid reign in the oldest part of the village, has a very vast nocturnal prayer hall. The ornamentation used here look very much like those of the tomb of Bayazid of Bastam, the great Persian mystic.

    The Jam'e Mosque of Abyaneh dates back to the eleventh century. There are a number of inscriptions and a manbar (pulpit) in the mosque. The interesting thing is that the pulpit has many features similar to the architectural elements and column heads seen in Persepolis.

    On the main street (I suppose this s the main street) there is a 14th century mosque. Very unlikely to any other mosque I saw in Iran, it is made from red mud bricks just like the houses of villagers. There are at least one another mosque in the village, but near Friday mosque there was a sign with name of the mosque. The mosque was closed when I passed by, so I can not say how it looks from inside.

Abyaneh Transportation

    I rented a car (very good, almost new car) with driver from Esfahan to Kashan via Abyaneh from Iran Travel & Tourism Tour travel agency. I paid 45 000 rials for approximately 3 hour journey including one hour in Abyaneh. I am sure you can get better price, but I am not that good in bargaining. In travel agency they told me the driver also will be a guide, but actually he was not. But anyway Abyaneh maybe is not the place you need a guide. On our way the friendly driver showed me some interesting places like caravanserais, ruins some castle etc and made one stop to make photos when I asked. It is possible to go to Abyaneh from Kashan by bus or combinig several buses, but it could be difficult.

Abyaneh Local Customs

    Greet local people you will see on the streets. Just say Salaam! - it will be polite. It is their village and maybe some of villagers do not like people coming there and watching the houses and villagers. But when you greet them they seem very friendly and try to make a conversation even if there are no common spoken language. Also ask a permission to take a photo of people. Some will say "no", but some will allow you to take a photo of them.
