City in central Iran with 190,000 inhabitants (2003 estimate), in Teheran Province. Kashan is an oasis city lying in a desert at the eastern foot of the Central Iranian Range.
Kashan was earlier an important station on an important caravan route between Kerman and Esfahan. Today the economy is based upon the production of some of the finest carpets of Iran, woollen and silk goods, brass and copper work and jewellery.
Kashan has several ancient monuments. Most famous are the mausoleum of Shah Abbas 1, the 12th century Friday Mosque and the Safavid royal buildings southwest of the city centre.
