Description:
According to the Lonely Planet guide to Iran, "Hiding behind high mud-brick walls [in Kashan] are hundreds of once-grand traditional houses. Built during the 19th century, most have long-since been carved up or are literally turning to dust, but several have been restored and, mercifully for the city, the idea is catching. Those that can be visited are monuments to Kashan as a Qajar-era commercial hub, embellished with fine stucco panels, ostentatious stained glass and lofty badgirs (windtowers) all set around a series of interlinked courtyards."
