Mir Emad Mosque or Meydan Mosque
The Meydan Mosque, counted among the most famous of Kashan's monuments, was built in 1461 during the reign of Jahan Shah QaraQuyunlu. It was created to commemorate his return from the hajj. In its heyday, the mosque was an imposing structure with lofty Evans, an impressive domed sanctuary, a vast courtyard, prayer halls, and a Howzkhaneh (a basement chamber) with a pool of more than 3 m deep. Most of this splendid building was, however, destroyed and is still in decay despite repeated repairs. Currently, only the mosque's impressive portal hints at its former grandeur.
The Congregational Mosque is the oldest surviving historical building in Kashan. Today, it is rather unimpressive, but its brick dome, lofty minaret, high Eivan, spacious courtyard, and vast prayer halls imply the mosque's former glory. The building seems to be of great antiquity. Archaeological investigations have revealed the existence of a fire temple on the site. This temple was converted into a mosque after the advent of Islam in Iran. The earliest relic that can be currently found in the building, however, does not date earlier than the Seljuk period.
Kashan Great Bazaar
One of the most fascinating sites of Kashan is its great bazaar. The first marketplace existed in the city as early as the 13th century. It was, however, rebuilt during the Safavid rule. At that time, the bazaar was not only an important economic and trade center of the town, but also a place for social gatherings, public festivities, and even royal feasts. Like many other structures in the town, the bazaar was destroyed during the earthquake of 1778 and restored soon afterward at the order of the Zand ruler.
The most important Kashan's holy shrines
Islam occurred and arrived in Iran about 1400 years ago. it spread in all cities and districts, and due to the attention of Iranians to this new religion, Islamic elements developed greatly. The attention of Iranians to Islam in different cities caused the migration of the descendants of Shiite leaders (Imams) to Iran. Different cities of Iran hosted them according to their political and geographical location. The city of Kashan hosted more of these descendants of Shiite Imam.
This house is another example of multiple structures, which constitute numerous parts of one integrated complex. This house is older than the other mansions of Kashan, dating from the Zand and early Qajar periods. The house overwhelms with the opulence of its decorations. This is not surprising, for Ameri, its owner, was one of the most affluent persons in the history of Kashan.
