    Fin Historic Garden

    Bagh-e Shah, the King's Garde(also known as the Bagh-e Tarikhi-e Fin or Bagh-e Amir Kabir) at Fin 6 km to the southwest, and perhaps the finest surviving example in Iran, creates the contrast between the Kevir region and the greenery of the well-tended oasis below the adjoining Karkass mountain. A major part of Kashan's water was supplied by the perennial source of Suleimanieh spring in the garden.
    References to Fin in historical sources go back to more than 1000 years. Designed for Shah Abbas I, this classical Persian vision of paradise has always been prized for its natural springs and still contains the remains of his two-story palace set around a pool. The garden has other Safavid royal buildings, although they were substantially rebuilt, and others were added in the Qajar period. The building housing Kashan Museum was built in 1968, in harmony with the historical monuments within the Garden, covering 900 square meters, and comprising 8 vast galleries, wherein items from Iranian culture and civilization in various periods of history are displayed.
    At present, the pleasant sight of water from Suleimanieh spring, ever spouting from fountainheads by the sole means of difference in elevation is one of the attractions of this complex. Flowing at an elevation of 1,060 meters above sea level, it passes through numerous paths of the Garden, reaches the Fin village, and waters orchards famous for their unparalleled figs and pomegranates. Once it operated 33 water-mills. Apart from being used for medical purposes in the past centuries and attracting the attention of many scholars and physicians, it was estimated that the daily turnover of this spring amounted to one thousand mesghals (5 kg) of pure gold.

    Bagdirs (wind towers) in Kashan

    Bagdirs are wind towers and they can be seen in some Iranian cities where it can be very hot.
    You can say that bagdirs are natural air-conditioners. They catch the wind and direct it through a shaft to the rooms below, where there is a pool of cool water, cooling the air. Through a different shaft the hot air in the house is directed upwards.
