Overview

Abyaneh Village

Abyaneh is one of the highest residential areas in Iran, located 40 km from Northwest of Natanz(Kashan tour). The reason for being well-known as a red village is the colour of this region’s soil, which has made all houses and constructions amazingly look reddish. We begin our trip by the Harpak Fire Temple that belongs to Zoroastrians. It’s the oldest monument of the village, built in the Achaemenid time. The temple includes three floors made of stone, plaster and clay.

Then, we head to Jame Mosque of Abyaneh, the congregational mosque which dates back to the Ilkhanid time and located in center of the village. The entrance door, decorated beautifully and considered as one of the oldest doors in Abyaneh. The mosque includes old and new halls. The old hall has a wooden floor and a wooden sanctuary, on which you can see carved plant designs. In fact, it’s very valuable historically. There’s also an ancient pulpit from Seljuk era, about 900 years ago.
Inside the new hall, you can see stunning carved pillars and a bright skylight. Some Quran inscriptions on the net wooden ceiling are also visible. Hinza shrine, known as Bibi Zobeydeh by people is another historical attraction of Abyaneh. The Shrine is built in front of a cave, so the cave has become part of its internal space. Some believe the shrine used to be a place for worshipping Anahid, the zoroastrians’ God. Some also consider it as a miracle and they hold a special ceremony inside the construction.
Wandering and observing the old texture of village will be so intriguing. We will watch the houses, built on the steep hills. In fact, the porch of one house is the roof of another one. People hold their old rituals and customs as they’re even wearing traditional clothes. Obviously, you’ll relish visiting this distinct village and get an ingenious taste of Persia.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

was more beautiful with our guide and his help!

Everything in our journey from the pick-up to Abyaneh was great. The village had a lot to wonder about, a very well-organized trip, perfect timing, and welcoming locals. Outstanding experience to try the local dress.

Wonderful trip with even better servcice

My experience with tappersia dates back to my first trip since then Rasool managed all the tours for my family. We were given enough time to stop and take pictures of the red village. I highly recommend booking this tour on the way to Kashan.
