Chain Lodges in the Central Desert!

Qasr is the name of this complex. 3 Caravanserais made of stone and bricks, consisting of Shah Abbas Palace (Qasr-e Bahram Caravanserai), Ain-al-Rashid and Haramsara. The latter was once the private palace of Shah’s wives! But now it is a public lodge for tourists. Neighboring the Kavir National Park, the complex witnesses the herds of deers, gazelles and fawns together with colorful birds of this national park watching the visitors and a large group of French desert lovers hanging around on dunes and rocks in their new but dusty sport utility vehicles (SUVs). it is 21 Feb. 2015.

There is also the remaining part of a stone paved road (five meter wide and 35 km long). It was once playing a very important role, preventing caravans from being trapped in sticky mud on their way. This stone road is also a remembrance from Safavid dynasty.
These days many foreign tourists are visiting this attraction, enjoying the tranquil atmosphere in the desert. Soon at night time the sky will be well decorated with shining stars. It seems that they want to talk with the guests of desert… willing to open talk with you too.
