Sadeghi house is a really nice place in the center of Kashan, Isfahan province. Here is an excellent choice to stay, with unique architecture and breathtaking views of Kashan from the rooftop of the house.

Hiding behind the Kashan’s high mud-brick walls are hundreds of large traditional houses built by wealthy merchants, monuments to the importance of Kashan as a Qajar-era commercial hub. Built during the 19th century, most have long since been divided into smaller homes and many are literally turning to dust. A few, however, have been restored and are open to the public as museums or as Kashan’s most desirable places to stay.
“Sadeghi accommodation” near Alavi Street in Kashan is one of them. Sadeghi traditional Inn with more than two centuries of History is very close to Abbasian House and Amerian House on Alavi St, Kashan. This place is located in the historical part of the town. The house dates back to Qajar and Safavid dynasty and is registered under 23926 as a national cultural and historical heritage of Iran. The construction and architectural features of this house are unique and different from other historical houses in Kashan. Stunning relief stucco, different styles of rooms based on different styles of cities in Iran, a beautiful windcatcher and amazing polychrome windows and glasses in the rooms of this traditional house are especial features that would catch the eyes of every tourist in Iran.
Kashan has a lot of tourist attractions and historical houses in its heart, with spectacular nature especially in spring. Every year from all over the world and across Iran, people come to visit Kashan to see its beautiful nature in the spring season and watch the process of “Golab-Giri “which means “Making Rosewater” in Persian. Golabgiri (“making Rosewater”) is a ceremony taking place annually from mid-May to mid-June in Kashan, Isfahan Province, Iran. The ceremony takes place throughout Kashan country, in Ghamsar, Niasar, and other villages. During this event, which annually attracts over a million tourists, the juice of red flowers planted in many flower gardens in these areas is prepared by the traditional method of an evaporation system.
There are also other kinds of tourist attractions in Kashan such as Bagh-e-Fin, Baazar, Hammam-e-Sultan Mir Ahmad, khan-e Boroujerdi, Khan-e Tabatabaei, Noushabad underground City, khan-e Abbasian, Handicraft workshop, Agha Bozorg mosque, Tappe-ye Seyalk, Icehouse, Shahzade Ibrahim, Sheibani’s museum of fine arts, Kashani national museum.

Many travelers, who make a journey to Iran, would like to visit Kashan because of its beautiful sights and various old and traditional arts attributed to this town. As it is on the main highway from Tehran to Isfahan and has got interesting sights to see, people usually stop here for a few hours if not for a night to learn more about it. When it comes to certain handicrafts, ancient sights and monuments, Kashan tourist attractions have got some highlights of Iran to offer their visitors.

General Information about Kashan

The city is growing into a large urban center in Isfahan province. So, its population is going higher than 320,000 and a lot of new streets and residential areas are under construction. The altitude of the city is approximately 940m above sea level and the climate is dry with extremely hot summers and very cold winters. The reason should be sought in the existence of adjacent Dasht-e-Kavir (northern desert of Iran).

Traditionally Kashan has been famous for producing silk, carpets, velvet, rose water and potteries. Today, in addition to those traditional products, Kashan’s automotive industry produces cars and motorcycles as well as other goods in its factories.

The historical mounds and sights in and around Kashan indicate the history-old nature of settlement in this part of Iran since antiquity. Fin village that used to be outside Kashan is now connected to the city and has added to the size of the city. Some of Kashan tourist attractions are either at Fin or between this village and Kashan itself.

Several large industries have recently been added to the industrial city in the northeast of Kashan making an employment magnet out of the city for the people living in the harsh climate around it. The summer temperature in and around the city is hard to tolerate unless one goes to the very nice villages at the foothills near this city.

History of Kashan

For those who travel to Iran and plan to visit Kashan, history has been a major reason. Since more than 8000 years ago, there have been people who had settled and lived in Sialk mounds, which is inside Kashan today. The archaeological findings show the variety of artifacts produced, bought and sold there.

Like many other cities of Iran, Kashan has been a community of Zoroastrians before Arabs’ invasion. After the 7th century, despite a lot of efforts in order not to surrender, people had to open the city gates and mit to the Arabs and sequently convert to the new religion. Together with Qom and Sabzevar, Kashan turned into a highly religious city after the advent of Islam in Iran. It is still in the same condition as it has been.

In the 11th century, Khwarezmians built a fortress inside Kashan and a wall called Jalali to protect the inhabitants. Safavid kings showed particular interest in this area and Fin garden was created as a Persian Garden for Shah Abbas who stayed there during his trip to Kashan. Qajars continued this special attention especially at the time of Fath Ali Shah who added a few sections to the garden.

The city prospered a lot when foreign trade began to flourish between Iranian and Russian businessmen. Some of the old houses of Kashan, which are now considered typical old houses of Iran, indicate the wealthy Iranians’ living conditions of that period. They also showcase the architecture of average Iranians’ houses regardless of decorations and size.

Traditional houses in Kashan:

Hiding behind the Kashan’s high mud-brick walls are hundreds of large traditional houses built by wealthy merchants, monuments to the importance of Kashan as a Qajar-era commercial hub. Built during the 19th century, most have long since been divided into smaller homes and many are literally turning to dust. A few, however, have been restored and are open to the public as museums or as Kashan’s most desirable places to stay.
While each house has its own distinct features (the tallest wind catcher, the best plasterwork, the most courtyards), they all share a common principle of design. The house is arranged around a series of interlinked courtyards, each with a separate function: the andaruni served as the internal area where family members lived; the biryani acted as an external area used for entertaining and housing guests and conducting business; and the khadameh(servants’ quarters). Designed to be plain and modest from the outside, with no house exceeding the height of any other, the doorways show a little hint of the wonders within. Even the receiving area is concealed from the courtyard by angled corridors, perhaps to ensure privacy, or perhaps to increase the impact of stepping into the first courtyard. High thresholds and low door frames into each room were built partly to keep scorpions at bay, and partly to enforce a bow on entry.

Each courtyard is arranged around a central garden with a water feature (usually a rectangular pool with fountains) and includes a warm south-facing seating area that catches the winter sun and an opposing north-facing area for warmer months. Lofty badgirs channel the prevailing winds into a basement used for escaping the summer heat. The houses are full of aesthetic wonders, including elaborate stucco work, stalactite ceilings, painted murals, and gorgeous colored glass and wood paneling. They make a refreshing place simply to sit and enjoy the garden or watch as others pause to catch their reflection in the glasswork or stoop to scoop up colored sunbeams.
