The Kerman National Library modestly bills itself as the ‘greatest informatic research centre in the country’, but for non-Farsi speakers it’s the architecture – a forest of columns supporting vaulted ceilings – that is the real attraction. Built in 1929, the style is a harmonious variation on late-Qajar-era design that was purpose built as...a textile factory.
