Known as the red village, Abyaneh is on Iran’s national heritage list due to the authenticity and uniqueness of its architecture and traditions. This 1500-year-old village is considered one of the highest settlements of the country with an elevation of 2222 meters above the sea level. During this one-day excursion to Abyaneh, we will get familiar with the customs and culture which have been preserved by the locals for over a thousand years.
Leaving Kashan, we have a drive of about 85 km to reach Ayaneh Village. While visiting some of the attractions of the village including the Zoroastrians’ Fire Temple, the Congregational Mosque and ancient castles, we will have the chance to get to know the locals. It’s so interesting to see how these few villagers have kept alive many of their dialects, costumes and rituals during these modern ages. Women wear a special kind of colorful two-tiered skirts and cover their hair with a big floral scarf called Charghad. And men wear a type of loose pants with long shirts.
While exploring the village, we can see handicrafts and fruit rolls made and sold by locals on every corner. And remember that the best seasons to visit the village are spring and autumn. Lunch will be served in a restaurant in the village and in the afternoon, we will drive to Isfahan (a distance of about 165 km).
Tour duration is from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
