Kashan

Kashan is a city in the Isfahan province of Iran. Kashan is the first of the large oases along the Qom-Kerman road which runs along the edge of the central deserts of Iran. Its charm is thus mainly due to the contrast between the parched immensities of the deserts and the greenery of the well-tended oasis. Archeological discoveries in the Sialk Hillocks which lie 4 km (2.5 miles) west of Kashan reveal that this region was one of the primary centers of civilization in pre-historic ages. Hence Kashan dates back to the Elamite period of Iran. The Sialk ziggurat still stands today in the suburbs of Kashan after 7000 years. After well-known Iranian historical cities such as Isfahan and Shiraz, Kashan is a common destination for foreign tourists because of its many historical sites.

Arriving

By train

Kashan is also connected to Tehran, Isfahan (one night train every second day) and numerous other cities by train. The Kashan Train Station is located at the eastern fringe of the town.

By bus

Kashan is situated around 250 km south of Tehran. A bus ride from Tehran's South Terminal (Terminal-e-jonub) takes at least three hours. From Isfahan, the distance is 220 km, there are frequent buses from the Kaveh terminal, 2.5 hours.

Buses tend to drop passengers at Valiasr Square or Montazeri Square, particularly for transit buses merely passing Kashan on their way to another destination. Expect enough taxis hanging around.

For leaving Kashan, head to the Kashan Bus Terminal.
