SIGHTSEENING IN THE KASHAN MOUNTAINS
QAMSAR THE ROSEWATER VILLAGE
HomE | MaP | MorE
Qamsar is a village in the mountains southwest of Kashan.
Here grows the best quality of the Mohammadi rose flower,
which is used to distil rose water during spring season.
After picking rose petals in the wonderful gardens of Qamsar
during the morning hours, they are heated in steam boilers.
Then the steam is cooled and changes into an aromatic liquid
called Golab. Rose water is heavily used in Iranian sweets
Rosewater and other plant waters are for sale inside the shop.
Persian calligraphy welcomes us Qamsar's Rosewater festival.
In the gardens on a carpet relaxing with cold rosewater drink.
