Abyaneh is a famous historic Iranian village near the city of Kashan in Isfahan Province.

With a unique reddish hue, the village is one of the oldest in Iran, attracting numerous native and foreign tourists year-round, especially during traditional feasts and ceremonies.

Abyaneh has been called an entrance to Iranian history. The local clothing, for example, is in a style of great antiquity.

On top of the village sits the ruins of a Sassanid era fort.

Since June 2005, the village has been undergoing archaeological excavations for the first time ever, as a result of an agreement between Abyaneh Research Center and the Archaeology Research Center of the Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO).
