welcome to kerman ,the city of history and art

welcome to kerman city.
The township of Kerman is at a distance of 1,076 km. from Tehran, and lies in a vast plain, which is divided by a chain of mountains into two, the northern and southern sectors. The former is the desert area, whereas the latter comprises of the inhabited region (both urban and rural) due to its moderate, and suitable climatic conditions. Kerman is the provincial capital and is one of the ancient and historical cities of Iran.
kerman located below of the central desert in east of iran.
kerman has too much places for visiting .

In the Greek language, Kerman was known as 'Karamani', and there is a strong possibility that Ardeshir Babakan was the founder of this city, and therefore was reputedly known as Ardeshir Khoreh. The Arabs called it Bardseer or Bardsheer, and to the Iranians it was known as Guasheer. Kerman is a beautiful city with many historical and religious sites.

    An excellent page on what used to be Bam! It is a real shame to know that the people and buildings here have been devastated.

    I heard that this historic castle was completely destroyed in the earthquake on Dec. 26, 2003. Is this true? I have not seen any photos to confirm this yet.
