What to Do in Kashan?

First things first, do not miss out on visiting the eye-catching historical houses; to put it better, they are more of a mansion rather than a house. Tabatabai House, Historical Ameri House, and Abbasian House are only a few of the houses you should visit in Kashan.

 Aqa Bozorg Mosque, Sultan Amir Ahmad Bathhouse, and the magnificent Kashan Bazaar are other places not to miss. There is also an invaluable collection of Persian toys and puppets at Kashan Toy & Puppet Museum, which you should take a look at. Creativity, ingenuity, and art are the features of touristic attractions of Kashan. Besides visiting all these artistic sites, do not forget to buy some tasty and peaceful herbal drinks and rose water as well. You can use the rose in your teas and the rosewater in different drinks and foods, and even as a natural toner for your skin! 

When is the Best Time to Visit Kashan?

Each year in April and May, the mesmerizing fragrant Rosewater Distillations are held in Kashan and surrounding cities like Ghamsar and Niasar. It is highly recommended not to miss these memorable events. If you want to make the most out of your stay in Kashan and due to its warm weather, spring is a better season for your visit there.
