Spot: Maranjab

 

In a clear starry night of Iran central desert, stars circle around the northern celestial pole above the historic Maranjab Caravansary near Kashan. Caravansary (Persian word for caravan house) is an old time roadside inn, a place for travelers to rest and recover from the day's journey. While today they are mostly turned to museums and historic reserved monuments, in old time Caravanserais supported the flow of commerce, information, and people across the network of trade routes covering Asia, North Africa, and South-Eastern Europe.
