Another city that has formerly served as Iran’s capital is Kerman. The city has witnessed countless glorious and tragic moments in its long history. In its heydays Kerman was a major route linking the southern coast to Khurasan Province and a prime trade center. However, it was put under siege and invaded many times by clashing forces and sometimes paid a dear price for conspiring with one side. The ghastliest of these acts of terror was committed by the harrowing figure of Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar (1789 to 1797) when after capturing Kerman he blinded 20 thousand of the people and made a huge pile out of their eyeballs. But in spite of being sacked many times, the city still maintains its charm as one of the capitals of Iran and the visitors who take Kerman tours are often struck by the sheer beauty of Kerman tourist attractions. Even though Kerman isn’t a metropolis, it is immensely popular with tourists who visit the city because of its historical and cultural sites and in particular the famous Arg-e Bam. In the light of the latter, Kerman offers surprisingly diverse choices of accommodation.
