Kish managed to keep this place as old as it was. Structures were golden, obviously made from the sands around the area. It always feels good to be able to see, feel something that you can't comprehend how old it was and how it was built considering ancient civilization doesn't have a lot of tools. A must visit!

Just some old walls, I didn't like it much, it was not even close to what I expected. It is old as they say but they maintained it properly looks like they recently repaired it

When you go to Kish Island, during a day tour you will go to Harireh.. which is a very nice and old city in the heart of the island.. it's amazing that how people around 800 years ago could match their life style with the hot weather and the island conditions.. every house has a complete service, kitchen, rooms, etc...
