Stunning Stepped-Village in Iran
Feb. 2020
Abyaneh is famous as the red village of Iran located on the Iran classic tourist route near Kashan. Interestingly, in Abyaneh, inhabitants have preserved their traditional clothing and costumes and still wear their beautiful traditional clothes. The village has a reddish stepped architecture that offers a fantastic view. You can either pop into Abyanhe on the way between Kashan and Isfahan for a couple of hours or have a day trip to this village and stay overnight there. There are a lot of activities to do in Abyaneh, such as visiting its tourist attractions, buying souvenirs, tasting delicious local food, renting traditional clothes, taking nice pictures, and riding bicycle (if available). Fortunately, there are plenty of facilities for tourists in this village including:
Hotels, bank and ATM, W.C, mosque, traditional bakery, rental of traditional clothes, restaurants, cafes, snack shop, local shops, health center, etc.
The best time to visit Abyaneh is during spring and fall.

Stunning Village
Oct. 2019
Abyaneh village as most of people call it "red village", is a place that you feel the warmth of a real life. The people and their dresses are amazing. The women wear colorful floral dresses. Also, you can see ancient buildings in the village. It is a worthy-visiting village near Kashan and we suggest it a lot.

Abyaneh, a home to hospitality
Sep. 2019
Such a fabulous village. Abyaneh is known as red village because all the houses are built of mud-dried bricks. You need at least a half-day for visiting this nice village. Also, don't forget to take photos of local people by getting permission.

A pleasant village
Sep. 2019
With the exception of the Harpak fire temple, which is built of stone, all of the buildings are built of reddish mud-dried bricks. We were invited into a house by 2 elderly ladies, and I was hoping to hear them speak Middle Persian, but they didn't. The village is nice to wander around, but not really of great interest.

marvelous ancient village
Mar. 2019
Abyaneh is famous for its reddish hue clay containing iron oxide, that’s why some people called it the Red Village.
The red houses of the village with its lattice windows and wooden balconies have been built on the ancient architectural style, similar to Masouleh. The roofs of some houses are used to serve as the courtyard for other houses higher up on the slope. As well, the structure of the village’s houses is in Spiral Shape and there is no blind alley.

Still worth a visit
Oct. 2019 • Solo
I came here with a driver who also became my guide while in the village. It’s a nice half day tour from the city, but I do recommend bringing a guide. The village itself is beautiful and unique, but you will not get much out of your visit if no one is there to tell you the story or what you are looking at.
I think I was lucky cause not many tourists were here as we arrived and upon leaving busses full of tourists arrived. Had I arrived at the same time as them the village might not have seemed so charming and unique. So get there early and be sure to bring a guide.

Beautiful village...
Sep. 2019
Though there are times when the village gets overwhelmed with tourists, it is truly worth a visit. Spend some time here walking its alleyways and enjoying its nooks and crannies. Architecturally its no marvel, but the rough red earth exteriors are quite mesmerizing. It's largely peopled by an elderly population..notice their dress and language. Overall a unique experience.

Part of 11 day TowardPersia Tour
Sep. 2019
I visited this amazing hillside Village with my tour guide and driver during my 11 day custom tour of Iran with Hossein Eradatmand (TowardPersia.com) Our main visiting locations were Tehran,Qom, Kashan, Esfahan, Yazd, Persepolis, and Shiraz. I encouraged him to book local smaller hotels and for us to eat as many local food dishes as possible. In my many world travels, Hossein was really one of the best guides I have ever had. The Iranian people I met and came across were very friendly and congenial to Americans and Canadians and all of their visitors that I saw. The sights and countryside of this large country are truly amazing and in well-kept condition. Iran is almost three times larger than France in land area. My tour was in the latter half of September. The USA news media highlights of isolated events should not discourage one from visiting this country which is just packed full of sights which are not crowded. I repeat I never encountered any problem areas and never felt unsafe in the many areas we went to day or night.

Mithraism buried under Islamic temple
Nov. 2019 • Couples
There's a mosque that's always closed !
You have to arrange the visit with the man in charge of small shrine of the village, he has the key.

This is one of the sites which is unique in the entire country.

Architerally it maybe of no significance .

This place is an example of how new religon has historically was buit up on the old religon .

What you see as principle of a religon-the current temple- might have its root in what we don's see obvious : basement of the mosque

In other cases the fire temples-Read it Mithraism - had to be demolished and a new mosque-Read it Islam-was built on the ruins .But here...

You have to go see it yourself !

Here's the number of the key holder of the jame mosque ,Abyane village

He can hardly speak English.

This is what you can tell him :

Mæn ( I ) kelid ( key) mikhām (want) lotfæn ( pls)

Mishe ( possible) biaeed ( come) mæsjed (mosque) ?
