Abbasi House Kashan


(Khane-ye Tarikhi-ye Abbasian) (Abbasian Historical House)

The Abbasi House Kashan (Persian: Khāneh-ye ‘Abbāsihā) is a large traditional historical house located in Kashan, Isfahan Province, Iran. Built during the late 18th century, the house is a beautiful example of Kashan’s residential architecture. Other such notable houses, such as the Tabātabāei House, are located nearby. Said to have been the property of a famous cleric, the Abbāsi house has six courtyards that would fit the needs of different families. One of the chambers has a ceiling designed with mirror pieces so as to give the impression of a starry sky under the nocturnal glitter of candlelight. Secret passageways were also built into the house, perhaps designed for the escape in times of invasion and emergencies The house is now a museum, and is protected by Iran’s Cultural Heritage Organization

The highlights of Kashan are withouth a doubt the Historical Houses you can find here. This picture shows the courtyard of the Abbasi House, a traditional residential house in the centre of the city. Most of the houses in kashan used to belong to wealthy clerics or traders, who built them for their families. As you can see in this picture, the architecture is very detailed and unique. The Abbasi house is surrounded by many other historical houses, almost all of them well worth a visit. stunningstructures

One of the largest and grandest of the old Kashani houses you can visit is the Abbasian Historical House. One of the elegant domed ceilings with angled skylights to provide illumination without allowing direct sunlight to overheat the room. Traditional houses in Iran have two door knockers which make different sounds. Men use one and women the other. In a religious society, it’s important to know who’s at the door. The Abbasian Historical House in Kashan has four courtyards. This is a view of the upper level of the outer courtyard (for customers and guests). Note the domed skylight and the intricate carved plasterwork. Another view of the outer courtyard. The grand domed porch would have been used for receiving the family’s most important guests. The room with the elegant triple-doors you see on the upper level was reserved for the lady of the house. Three, five, or even seven-door chambers denoted the most important rooms of the house. This courtyard has yet to be restored. There are dozens of traditional houses in Kashan in varying states of disrepair. In this picture you can see the entranceway the sardab and futher down into the kande
