Dating from Sassanian times, the crumbling mud bricks of the Ateshkadeh-ye Esfahan stare out over the Zayandeh River and the city from a low hill on its outskirts. The 20-minute scramble uphill is worth the effort on a clear day. Many buses (US$0.90) travel west along Sheikh Bahaei St from near the corner of Chahar Bagh Abbasi St. A taxi dar baste will cost around US$6.50.

Note that many tour guides will suggest that you visit the Manar Jomban (Shaking Minarets) nearby, but we suggest giving it a miss – they’re just silly.
