This is another house worth being visited in Kashan and it is the famous Borujerdi House whose owner was a wealthy businessman of the city of Kashan. The story behind building this house is really interesting.
The Ameri House also is known as 'Khan-e Ameriha' or house of the Ameri family is a historic house in Kashan. It was built during the Zand era for Agha 'Ameri, the governor of Kashan, who was responsible for maintaining the security of the route between Tehran and Kerman.
This 500-year-old hammam is a glorious example of an Iranian bathhouse. A recent reparation has stripped away 17 layers of plaster (note the wall inside the second room) to reveal the original sarough, a type of plaster made of milk, egg white, soy flour and lime that is said to be stronger than cement. Richly colored tiles and delicate painting feature throughout, and a further highlight is the panorama of the town's minarets and badgirs viewed from the roof.
The mosque of Agha Bozorg in Kashan is one of the best mosques in Iran. The historical mosque was built in the late 18th century & is famous for its precise, symmetric architecture & attractive appearance.
