Nain Travel Guide and Trip Resources


At the border of the desert

Na'in is a small town in Isfahan Province of Iran
Located next to the desert and home to some top sights like the Jame Mosque and Rigareh Underground Water Mill

Na'in (sometimes spelled Naein) is a town of 24,000 in Isfahan Province in Iran. It lies at about a 1 hour drive from Isfahan itself at the outside of the Dasht-e Kavir ("Great Salt Desert") of Iran.

Na'in is small in size, but besides the novelty of staying out in (next to) the desert, it has more than its fair share of very interesting monuments to draw tourists here.

The Jame Mosque, constructed in the 8th century and one of the country's oldest mosques that was constructed shortly after the Arabs invaded, is spectacular with its meticulously laid brickwork and plasterwork exterior. The Rigareh Underground Water Mill, caves and Mosallah edifice with its garden and mausoleum are other sights to look out for. [Review by travelindicator]
