We’ve all heard of the expression ‘paint the town red.’ Well, Iran’s historic village of Abyaneh is the literal embodiment of this phrase. One of Iran’s oldest villages, it features astonishing red houses and other structures made from the area’s iron oxide-rich soil. The Jameh Mosque which was built in the 11th century is arguably the village’s most impressive landmark featuring intricate ancient carvings. Nestled between the bustling cities of #Kashan and #Isfahan and set against a backdrop of the beautiful peaks of Mount Karkas, Abyaneh is like a habitable museum showcasing its unique heritage, tradition and beauty that stood the test of time.
