Located close to the ancient city of Kashan, Maranjab Desert is truly one of the most beautiful deserts in Iran with golden sand dunes. Becoming deeply impressed by the scenery of moving sands and salt lake, seeing Maranjab caravansary, examining rare plants, seeing strange animals and awesome sky in night are among motivations that prompt the lovers of natural geography to embark on a trip to this desert. Maranjab caravansary is one of the most famous and notable caravansaries in Iran. The Caravansary was built by order of Shah Abbas I Safavid to be as a military base and a rest house for the caravans in the 16th century. The strong and rigid construction was made of brick and plaster with four watch towers in each corner. The building has several rooms with a rectangular shape garden in the middle of the building.
Deserts in Iran are fascinating not just because of their unforgettable scenery, but also because of their long, ancient, and enchanting history
