Contrary to what you may think, these unique mud-bricks get stronger with every rain that hits them.

pretty flowers, handmade cloth shoes and beautiful antiquated village, Abyaneh
Abyaneh is not just a beautiful antiquated village with magnificent old houses, carved wooden doors and breathtaking nature. Aside from the obvious attractions and beauties, this exceptional little village is also home to exceptional and very traditional people! The men and, especially, women of this village are nationally renowned for their beautiful traditional clothing. The women have been sporting long with head-scarves and red knee-low skirts, all covered in pretty flowers, for as long as history has been written! The great old men of this town accompany their women with a felt hat, some very loose canvas pants, a long garment or coat and some handmade cloth shoes called giveh (pretty much the same as Spanish espadrilles).
Even yet, these are not all this tucked away gem has to offer. The red village is host to magnificently lavish and widely commemorated annual religious ceremonies and festivals. Tourists and travellers love to come in time to see these ceremonies and visit the old Friday and Porzaleh Mosques and the 2,500 year old Zoroastrian fire temple! A few pilgrimage sites, an ancient Persian fort and three castles also await the attention of nearby travellers. This destination is one that you must definitely remember to pack an extra battery for your camera. However, don’t be surprised in the local old-timers ask for money when you request to photograph them!
