Abyaneh is so popular because of the old red clay buildings, stepped architecture (in a way that the roof of one house is the courtyard of the other house), and elderly residents in traditional costumes. The oldest construction in the village is the Harpak Fire Temple (going back to the Achaemenid era). In my opinion, the people and the architecture are the highlights! But if you want to take photos of locals, I strongly recommend you ask them first for permission! They are so kind, hospitable, and welcoming but as long as you respect their privacy! ;) Visiting Abyaneh, you'll enjoy the fantastic view of the village, wear traditional clothes, take photos, and buy local products as souvenirs. If you don't mind it's too crowded, you can also visit the village in Muharram when they hold the Nakhl Gardani ritual. I think visiting the village with a guide is a good idea to make your experience more enjoyable. Abyaneh is beautiful in all four seasons, but if you ask me it looks more beautiful in the spring and fall (it's a bit cold though). Located between Isfahan and Kashan, you can easily include it in your plan to or from both of these cities and if you like to stay at night, you can stay in local guesthouses.

Abyaneh,an ancient village in Isfahan Province is also known as the Red Village because of the color of the soil with high level of iron oxide.

I did not see too many people, mostly vendors and a few people walking around. What is interesting is that the village has preserved its costumes and traditions.

One interesting point about Abyaneh that can attract your attention is the doors!

Most of the doors have two knockers; the round-shaped door knockers for females, and the long shaped door knockers for male. These two door knockers have different sounds, it gives a clue to the owner whether a male or a female knocks on the door.

As a result, if the house owner is a woman, she will understand the gender of the guest. She will prepare to wear a hijab if a male is behind the door. Also you can see Quranic verses or poems and sometimes names of the owners on top of the doors as a great design.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
