History & Culture

Kashan is one of the oldest cities in our country. Humans have been living in the region of Silk hillocks since 7,500 years ago; it is located 4 kilometers west of Kashan.

The French archaeological team excavated and explored the region of Silk during the years 1311 to 1312 under the direction of Roman Greishman and concluded that the area was the first human settlement in the plain and has the oldest buildings built with adobe in the whole world. Kashan is believed to be the origin of the three wise men who followed the star that guided them to Bethlehem to witness the birth of Jesus, as read in the Bible. Whether this story is true or not, the attribution of Kashan as their original home shows the city's prestige at the time the story was set down.

Kashan has a special role in Iran tourism since it has historical sights, you cannot see anywhere in the world. You should pay a visit to the Silk hillocks in your Iran travel.
