(Persia Digest) – The historic baths of Kashan, in central Iran, are some of the more magnificent edifices which have always attracted tourists.
With their unique architecture, these baths are one of the main elements in the city – mosques, bazaars, houses, baths, and water reservoirs.
Some of Kashan’s best-known baths are the Fin, Soltan Amir-Ahmad, Gozarno, Abdolrazzagh Khan, and Mohtasham baths. Mir Emad, Ardehal, and Molla Ghotb baths are also among the older ones in the city.
The architecture of Soltan Amir-Ahamd Baths is among Iran’s most splendid in terms of design and ornaments, situated in an area measuring 1102 square meters in the historic city of Kashan.
