It was built at the junction of three ancient aqueducts (kariz). The three aqueducts are over 2000 years old, and over 15 km long, which are now turned into an astonishing underground city that is more than ten thousand square meters. This cultural tourism complex of Kish hosts over one hundred thousand domestic and foreign tourists each year.

If you have a limited time, dont spare it on such boring places! There are more things to do in Kish and if you are searching for a history in Iran, maybe Kish is jot your best destination.

I love the Kish island and I totally recommend to visit it during winter time and during summer is hot and humid sometime. the island has many water and beach activities which makes your trip more adventure.

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.

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.
