    Bagh-e Tarikhi-ye Fin

    by hydronetta Written Sep 6, 2006
    4 more images

    This garden located 8km SW of the city of Kashan and near the village of Fin is a classical Persian vision of paradise.
    This vicinity gained fame due to the murder of Amir Kabir, the reputed nationalist and Prime Minister of Nasereddin Shah Qajar, in a small bath here in 1851 by the order of the Shah.
    This garden is a relic from the Safavid period, and has remained such for centuries due to the capacity of water it gains from the Soleimaniyeh spring. Today, this water flows into the pool after meandering through this beautiful garden, and providing water for the surrounding areas
    The structures of this garden are: the entrance and its facade, tower and ramparts, the Safavid and Fathali Shah sections, chambers for the elite, the museum on the western side of the premises, the large and small bath and the library in the eastern sector of this garden.
    The covered construction housing the Shah Abbasi section is in two floors, this being in the center of the garden and opposite the grand facade. Here, there are beautiful paintings.

  • The red village

    by global_explorer Written Jul 4, 2004

    Abyaneh village spreads up a hillside up in the mountains. Most of the houses are made up of ocrered clay mixed with grass. They are huddled tight together leaving space for only narrow paths between the houses, or on the roofs of the buildings. For the best overwiew of the place, climb to the top of the village where two small fortresses guards the area. From here you can pln yous walk through the maze of corridors, or you can choose just to follow your maze. The trip to the village are in tiself an attraction. Some of the way goes over the flat plains, before heading up into the scenic butbonedry mountains. It may come as a surprise that some villages maintain luh, green farmlands crawling like worms along the bottom of the valley. The contrast is striking. In one treegrove with a small creek the guide i used normally stops for breakfast picknickstyle. His name is Ahmad Poursiyedy and he lives just east of the wall of Fin garden outside Kashan
