Photographer's Note

The caravansary is like a hotel used to entertain travelers. In ancient times, people had to use animals to travel. So, the travels have been very long. For this reason, caravansaries built in the main ways to rest travelers and their animals. Shafiabad Caravansary is a beautiful and valuable memorial from the Qajar era. This caravanserai is located on the side of the desert and in the village of Shafiabad in Kerman province. Shafiabad caravansary with a beautiful portal and two short towers beside it attracts you. The portal tiles and four watchtowers add to the beauty of the complex. At the top of the gate is a multi-room space entrance. There is a qanat that it passes through the caravansary.
The city is located at the edge of the Lut desert, which is one of the hottest an driest places in the world. The Summers are long and extremely hot, while the winter are short and mild. In the end of October the weather was perfect.


Here is the view of the yard from the terrace on the gate. In Workshops views of the beautiful watch towers.
No one from TE was there, not even our Iranian friends.
