I can only compare this place with the underground city in Kashan (Noosh abad) and the basilica cistern in Istanbul. It well shows how iranians collected the underground water in acient times and how deep is the culture. The Small museum has some valuable objects but the most attractive thing is the fossil of a turtle in the ceiling of... More

when you enter this place in hot summer time, you cannot even imagine how cool it is going to be there down. it is really ok and the architecture is acceptable. there is a place that you can eat or drink different things. totally, it is acceptable.

As American tourists we weren't sure what to expect of the Kish experience but had a great time, and this stop was one of the high points. If you go I would suggest talking to the friendly and very educated/informative guides who give great insights not only into the location you are at but the country in general.
