The turmoil of Imam Khomeini and Hassan Abad Squares is so incredible that seldom one would notice the door of a unique museum in Sheikh Hadi Street. Moqadam Museum is located right amidst all this commotion. Yet, as soon as you put your foot into the entrance vestibule -hashti -of the house, you immediately leave the everyday mechanical life behind. The walls do not allow all this commotion to enter the private enclosure of this house now called the most valuable house of the world.

Sunday, March 20, 2016

Firouzeh Mirrazavi
When visiting Kashan in 1993, the chairman of UNESCO remarked: “Kashani architects are the greatest alchemists of history. They could make gold out of dust”. Indeed, almost all of Kashan’s masterpieces, as in many other parts in Iran are made of humble, local, earth. Many travellers opt to bypass Kashan on their journeys between Tehran, Esfahan and Yazd, but they do not know this delightful oasis city on the edge of the Dasht-e Kavir as one of the most alluring destinations in Iran, boasting a highly atmospheric covered bazaar, and a cluster of architecturally significant 19th-century houses.

Enjoyable Moments in Tehran with a Cup of History
Saturday, March 12, 2016

Firouzeh Mirrazavi
Often overlooked in favor of the glorious tourist attractions of Isfahan, Shiraz and Persepolis, Tehran has numerous draws of its own to keep visitors busy. Its tourist spots are spread wide, from the edgy cafes and modern high-rises climbing the slopes of the Alborz in the north to the sprawling suburbs of the conservative south, and from the Old World atmosphere of its grand bazaar to the blinding gaudiness of Golestan Palace and the National Jewelry Museum. Tehran offers tourists a little bit of everything, including the best place in which to feel the pulse of modern Iran and also old houses and mansions which hide a lot of historical memories and events in them.
