Easily the largest of the Kashan merchant houses, Khan-e Abbasian is a very impressive structure across several courtyards and multiple floors
Khan-e Abbasian is one of the older Kashan houses, dating from end 18th Century. The exact origin is not entirely clear, some say it was owned by a cleric, others claim the initiator was a rich glass merchant in town, but the result is a huge residential complex, covering a total of three floors. The lower floor contains the reception halls, with very high ceilings; the courtyards increase in size upwards, the higher ones each more spacious than the one below.
Great place to wander around, and to get lost from one courtyard to the other, from one cellar to the next.
