In a winter night of central Iran constellations Orion and Taurus are photographed near the moon as seen framed above ruins of a historic caravansary near Natanz. Caravansary (a Persian word for the home of caravans) 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.
