Sirius and Historic Caravansary

By: Amir H. Abolfath


Region: Middle East

Site: Natanz - Iran


In a winter moonlit night of central Iran, Sirius and the rest of stars in constellation Canis Major (Great Dog), shine through the ruins of a historic caravansary near Natanz. Caravansary (the home for caravans in Persian) 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.
