Iranian Caravanserais


Taking up photography after his university studies in historical restoration, Anousheh Pirbadian spent approximately three years travelling through his native Iran making pictures of the diverse ruins of caravanserais. At these roadside complexes travellers and trade convoys could find shelter, rest and safety, equivalent to modern-day inns. They are frequently found along the Persian Empire's Royal Road, part of the larger ancient network of trade routes supporting the flow of commerce, information, and people across Asia, North Africa, and south-eastern Europe. The structures are magnificently photographed, accompanied by short descriptions and location coordinates.
