WOW Simply beautiful and stunning!

Is the patrimony of this city as impressive an Isphahan's?

Kashan is a small city in the Isfahan province, it can not be compared to the great city of Isfahan, there are more than 6,000 registered national monuments in the city of Isfahan, the city which was the capital of some different empires about 1,000 years.

Such a gorgeous place.

But please credit the sources of the photos you post! Check this!

Unbelievable to see people are still unable to do that, esp. people being registered here for more than 5 years.

but "turkish bath" ?
its a traditional persian bath, which is very similar to a turkish hammam yes,if not they are the exact same
but there are many of these in iran and are also a traditional element of iran, therefore calling them turkish is quite demeaning

It can be true to say these baths originated in Iran but during the Turkish rule, they certainly differ from the ancient Persian baths, like Bokan Bath, these are a mixture of Persian, Roman and Turkish architecture, anyway are known as Turkish baths.

Beautiful architecture! It all looks pristine. Has many structures been restored in recent times?
