تولدت مبارک

Kashan was a short comfortable VIP coach ride from Tehran.

It was also where I was spending most of my birthday (having started it in Tehran.)

I really enjoyed this town - it was small enough to get around on foot and there were some lovely things to see which included mosques (naturally), a beautifully preserved hammam, several historic traditional houses (our hotel being one of them) and a short taxi ride away was one of the best old traditional Persian gardens in Iran.

Below are a selection of the (very) many photos we have of this charming town.
