Rosewater has existed in historical periods in Kashan, and to prove this claim, we can mention the Rosewater holidays, one of the ceremonies in ancient Iranian culture in Kashan. In 52 and 54 SH years, when Bulgarian experts studied on roses, it was concluded that the Mohammadi rose of Ghamsar in Kashan, in comparison with similar samples elsewhere, has a better quality and superiority.

Most European cologne companies for making perfumes use essential oil of Qamsar flowers. This has caused the perfume and rosewater of Qamsar to remain a name product for a long time. In the reputation of Ghamsar, it is enough that the house of God, Kaaba is washed every day with the pure Mohammadi essential oil of this city.

To find out the history of rosewater festival in Kashan, you can find a study of the Tepe Sialk excavations that have the form of flowers with 7 petals, which is evidence of the fact that the inhabitants of this area are familiar with flowers and plants from the millennia BC.Considering the evidence of the history books, the people who thought about inventing a device for the distillation of liquids and the ingestion of essential oils were Iranians.

Where Rosewater festival is held? The answer will be Qamsar & Niasar!!!

Qamsar is located 30 km south of Kashan, and although the name of Golab (Rosewater) is more closely tied to Qamsar, but in other cities of Kashan, such as Niyasar and other are also professional in this field.

Niyasar, known as the ancient garden of Iran, is located 30 km west of Kashan, besides the spectacular waterfall of Niyasar, a fourteenth building on the western hills of Niyasar and fire temple, including its places of worship. Where it is unique to Kashan and not anywhere else in the world.

In Ordibehesht, the Iranian Mohammadi flowers of the Rosaceae family, finally grow and get ready for damask rose essential oil extraction. If you go to Kashan in June (Khordad), only the buds that were on the branches in Ordibehesht were left. Rosewater festival tours in Kashan is arranged with Shivar Siavoshan Tour and Travel Agency in groups and in the early morning. At this event, the organizers of this ceremony, in early morning, they Pick flowers and then the main ceremony begins.

This ritual will give you an opportunity to learn the process of damask rose essential oil extraction and buy the best fresh rosewaters and other flower oils that are produced alongside them. In most of the village houses in Ghamsar, the flower garden of Mohammadi flowers, special watering pots even the in small size can be found.The ceremony was held in the past according to certain customs and traditions and when they collected the flowers from garden, they dug into the workshop with the help of a donkeys and with singing traditional songs and play instruments.

First, they put special boilers on the oven. Depending on the capacity of the pot, fresh flowers are mixed with water nearly 3 times more than flowers in that. By placing the cap on the pot, they also cover the possible openings to allow steam to remain in the pot. By turning on the flames of the oven or, in some cases, burning the firewood, it takes the 4-hour for completing this process.

Of course, before the start of the ceremony, they usually take the pot and flowers along the rivers and read religious prayers. When the contents of the boiler are boiled, the steam pours it out of the pipes into a large copper pit that is in the cold water. When these vapors are cooled, the rosewater is produced. The packs, depending on their capacity, provide about 30 to 40 kilos of rosewater. For a flower flavor, too, a very thin layer of oil on the rosewater should be removed with a syringe. If you want to have a very special rosewater, then you should re-boil the rosewater in the boilers.

Tourists from all over Iran and the world will come to this city during the time of the rosewater festival in Kashan to witness this beautiful process at Niyasar.
