Persia. Home to so many beautiful pieces of architecture and historic legacies. Colouricious Holidays has just released a new and exciting holiday for those of you interested in the historically jaw-dropping place! Here’s some of what can be explored:
Abbasi House is large and historically pleasing located in a central district of Kashan. It has been partly remade into a beautiful tearoom, shop and restaurant. It took nearly 20 years to build and the architecture is immaculate. With hidden passages, beautiful private rooms, halls and courtyard water pools, there is a lot of beauty to be seen!
Chehel Sotun is pleasure pavilion built within a large park. One of the wonders of this Persian architecture is the reflection of the pool giving an illusion of a nearly doubled size establishment. Amazing!
Sio-she-pol crosses the Zayandehrud River. Built between 1599 and 1602 the Bridge is still stunning today. The bridge is thought of as best to see at sunset due to the lamps that illuminate the structure.This is a sight you won’t want to miss!
Khaju Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in Iran. It illuminates at night so you can have a beautiful walk by the light and bridge side. Amazing paintings and tiles decorate the bridge so you can get inspiration from these amazing pieces. You can also enjoy some food at the local restaurants like Hermes Cafe Restaurant which offers a warm and cosy atmosphere.
Nasir ol Molk Mosque is a whirlwind of colours! You can see the beauty first hand created by the tiles and illuminated by the natural light of the outside. A space where light and worship combine. You get the best view of this at sunrise. Ultimately, this is a must see with links to Islamic art, architecture, tile making, geometry, patterns and much more.
