The Garden Landscape Guide

Kohan Kashane Hotel

Kohan Kashane is a traditional Yazd ancestral mansion with an attractive small courtyard garden. There is a large iwan, a rectangular pool, flowerbeds and small trees, and typical traditional stucco decoration on the walls. From the garden, a stone staircase leads underground to a rest place cooled by a qanat (an ancient underground irrigation canal). The mansion is now run as a small hotel by its family owners who preserve its traditional features.

    If you can find the Kohan Kashane on your meanderings through the Old City of Yazd, stop in for tea or a dish of their delicious rosewater ice cream. It's just the place to rest your feet and cool off. When you're refreshed, climb the steep stairs up to the roof for a terrific view of the Old City or climb the steep stairs down to the qanat--the underground water channel that brings water into the city from mountain streams. The Kohan Kashane is a wonderful opportunity to experience a traditional Persian house and garden.
