At first glance after entering Varzaneh city, you may deem to be in heaven or city of angels, because all women in this city, wear the long white Hijabs. Varzaneh is full of astounding attractions, among which we are going to visit Ghoortan and Toodeshk citadels and Gav Chah desert. In the center of Ghoortan village, at the edge of Zayandehrood, located a 4500-meter citadel, in which lived villagers up to thirty years ago and nowadays only a few people live there. Most of these citadels in Iran were built in the post-Safavid period due to insecurities (especially the Afghan invasion to Iran). Gavchah is a traditional well drainage method used in eastern Isfahan which has been recently revived somewhere among the sand dunes of Varzaneh to Hassanabad Road.

The second day we will visit the glorious Jameh Mosque of Naein, the absolute must-see mosque of Iran with all those spectacular stuccoes over the niche and the masterly brickwork around the yard,  and Pirnia historical house.

Due to the vicinity of this beautiful city to the desert, you will also have the opportunity to visit one of the most captivating deserts of Iran.
