Kashan (Persian: کاشان, Kāshān) is a city in the province of Isfahan, Iran. When visiting Kashan in 1993, the chairman of UNESCO remarked: “Kashani architects are the greatest alchemists of history. They could make gold out of dust”.

 

Khaneh Tabatabaei-ha or "The Tabatabaeis' House" is a famous historic house in Kashan, Iran. The house was built in the 1840s for the affluent Tabatabaei family. It consists of a four beautiful courtyards, delightful wall paintings with elegant stained glass windows, and all the other classic signatures of Traditional Persian residential architecture such as biruni and andaruni.

 

One of the amazing things you can do in Iran is visit its incredible historical houses or some of the mosques which have stunning color glass windows. If you are there at the right time the room is flooded with light and color.
