Abadeh

A little over halfway between Isfahan and Shiraz about 300km south of Isfahan, it servers as a welcome stopover for travellers, lies this small and pretty market town.

That, it no longer serves as a carpet producing centre is unfortunate, because those examples which remain give some indication that there was a fine quality product. However, perhaps its present function that of serving as a gathering point for carpets woven in the surrounding hamlets and countryside makes amends.
