In Kashan

Hi again! Yesterday i arrived in Tabriz from my 8 day journey...I am so happy that my friend,Hans has returned. I had a great time in Kashan,Kerman and Yazd with MissLondon. On 19th of March we started our voyage.we came out of Asseman at 8 a.m and Tabriz was very snowy!at 8 p.m we arrived in Kashan. The day after at 8 i was the first person who entered The Fin Garden!
The garden covers 2.3 hectars with a main yard surrounded by ramparts with four circular towers. In keeping with many of the Persian gardens of this era, the Fin Garden employs a great many water features. We went to Kashan's old alley's where most of historical houses were located.On the way we saw a vintage knitting factory under the ground.
Then we went to the famous historic Borujerdis House.It consists of a rectangular beautiful courtyard, delightful wall paintings by the royal painter Kamal-ol-molk,
After a 10 min walk we got to The Tabatabaeis' House.The house was built in the 1840s for the affluent Tabatabaei family.There was as splendid as other historical houses in Iran. It was designed by Ustad Ali Maryam. He is the same person who later on built the Boroujerdi-ha House for the Tabatabaei's newly married daughter.
I had a stroll in Kashan's Bazaar too
A famous historical mosque in Kashan is Agha Bozorg Mosque, considered as one of the most beautiful Islamic monuments of Iran, was constructed for prayers, preaching and teaching sessions and is the only mosque in the world which is in the 2nd floor.
It was sunset in Kashan that we went to see Tappeh Sialk.Sialk is a large ancient archeological site near Kashan,with occupations dated to as early as 6000 BC.
The next morning we went to KERMAN.
