Overview

Abyaneh Village

Abyaneh is one of the highest residential areas in Iran, located 40 km from Northwest of Natanz. 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.
