Kerman holidays

The key location of Kerman, on the trade route between Persia and India, has attracted waves of occupation over its long history, which dates back to the third century AD, when the Sasanids founded this desert city. Kerman’s lively bazaar and mud-built historic centre reflect the rich mix of peoples who have traded and lived here.

Once famed for its intricate shawls, Kerman owes its continuing status as an important trade centre to the magnificent carpets it has produced since the 16th century. Kerman carpets have evolved with changing fashions and the city remains the main carpet exporter in Iran.
