Driving southwards from Tehran to Isfahan or Yazd, on the edge of the Dasht-e Kavir, the northern desert of Iran, you can find one of the oldest oases worldwide, Kashan.
Archeological excavations show that the city was established around 8000 years ago and had come to a perfect civilization around 6000 years ago, when the city was known as one of the main industrial cities producing different kinds of pottery, exporting their products to hundreds of Kilometers away and bringing back valuable products and goods instead. But the first written history of Kashan is remained from Seljuk era, when the city was famous for its pottery and tilework again.
