Kashan’s amazement of architecture: Timcheh Amin-o-dowle

If you have read our other article about Qamsar in Kashan, a heaven of rose gardens! now it’s time to take you in a galaxy of colors and art which has come true in a Caravanserai in Bazaar of Kashan!
The Bazaar of Kashan
is among the city’s most significant historical monuments and tourist attractions, spanning from the middle of Baba Afzal street to Darvazeh Dowlat square. It is considered one of Iran’s most thriving and splendid bazaars due to its architectural space and its proximity to ancient trade routes.

History of Amin od-Dwoleh Timcheh

Amin od-Dwoleh Timcheh (or Aminoddole Caravanserai), built by Farrokh Khan Qaffari (aka Amin od-Dwoleh), is one of the most interesting inner structures of Kashan’s traditional bazaar. Its architectural work was done by Ustad Ali Maryam over the span of 5 years, from 1901 to 1906. The word “tim” means caravanserai and smaller caravanserais were referred to as “Timcheh”. However, in contemporary times, caravanserais or small, roofed ones such as the Amin od-Dwoleh in Kashan are referred to as “Timcheh”. Being roofed is a physical characteristic of the Timcheh, creating a suitable space for selling expensive goods such as carpets, away from the exposure of the sun, rain, and winds. Hence, Timechehs were often economically more expensive than caravanserais and cheap goods were not sold there.
