Bazaars are the heart of Iranian societies. They’re more than just a shopping center, they are where people interact culturally, socially, religiously, and economically. Elements like mosques, Caravanserais, Religious schools, and tea houses are only some parts of the bazaars. The architecture of the bazaars according to the climate and situation is a work of art worth walking through.
The beliefs, activities, and cultural events in Iran are a complex matter. We had beliefs based on natural elements, like the sun, moon, and water, and then we had religions like Zoroastrianism, which is one of the main religions throughout our history. There are many fire temples to get us acquainted with the basics and in some, the fire is still burning, counting hundreds of years.
Ever wonder where the word “Paradise” came from?
It came from the word “Pardis” in Persian which refers to Persian gardens. They are true samples of heaven on earth; it’s a wonder how Iranians used their different set of skills and knowledge to create green gardens in the middle of the desert. Persian gardens with their unique stories and advanced engineering are a delight to walk through and explore.
