Former US embassy of Iran, now known as the Den of Espionage, is a fascinating and historical place that could now be visited in Tehran. We were fascinated to see the place in person after hearing so much about it. The US Embassy in Tehran was the centre of world attention after it was seized by students during the peak of the Iranian Revolution in 1979.
Iran is a magnificent country. With landscapes vastly different from north to south, east to west. Deserts of Iran are something that fascinates me, as it a major bypass along the old Silk Road. Hence on our way from Shiraz to Isfahan, we made a stop in Yazd, to make sure you explore this desert city of Iran.
Located at the foot of the Zagros Mountains, we started our Iran trip from the city of Shiraz. The city is known as the city of poets, literature, wine and flowers, in addition to being the formal capital and of the oldest cities in Persia, there are plenty of things to do in Shiraz.
