Abarqu

A random but rather good stopover between Eghlid and Caravanserai Zein-o-din in central Iran, home to a stunning mosque and other interesting sights.

The Jameh Mosque pretty new, the tiles are only two years old.

This huge cone is an ice house, filled during the winter months to provide ice through the spring and summer months. Looks more ancient than it’s two hundred years.

The ~4,000-year-old cypress tree was underwhelming, sizeable but not massive.

Gonbad Ali Dome was an impressive tomb, perfectly located for sweeping views of Abarqu in one direction, and the desert in the other.
