Kerman or Carmania

Kerman is located on a high margin of Lut Desert or desert of emptiness in the central south of Iran, is the Capital of Kerman Province. it was ruled by Turks, Arabs and Mongols after the 7th Century .Kerman has had a long turbulent history. It was only during the rule of the Qajar Dynasty that security was restored in this city under the Central Government. Kerman has a small Zoroastrian minority. Most of the ancient Kerman was destroyed in a 1794 earthquake and second earthquake which was even more powerful was just after short while of my visit to the city in July 2003 when the most propular ancient castle "arg" of Bam completely collapsed.
My main reason to go was also to see if i m able to meet someone from zoro community but unsuccesful. and second reason to avoid my stay in zahedan due to bad experience of my first visit to iran while staying in zahedan.
