"Na'in" Na'in by iwys

Na'in Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 6 photos

Na'in is a crumbling, desert town famous for it's beautiful, blue and white carpets, which traditionally used indigo and silk brought by the camel trains returning from the Silk Road. In the middle is a two-thousand-year-old Sassanid Citadel, surrounded by a maze of alleyways, little changed since the Middle Ages.

If you like remote, exotic places, which the modern world has passed by, Na'in is for you.

All of the architecture in Na'in is designed to protect people from the baking heat of the desert sun. The traditional houses use wind towers to funnel the breeze through the interior. The rooms are below ground, where it is cooler.

    Loved this little page, great photos Ian. Beautiful architecture of the Mosque. That was an expensive rug, sounds a lovely souvenir though. (~_~)
