Tour description

The town has a fortified citadel in the Central Asian region, based on the use of the mud layer technique (Chineh) combined with mud bricks (Khesht). The ever-green city, whose name is BAM.

Bam is a garden city famous for the vast Arg-e Bam mud-brick citadel and the delicious Mazafati dates and citrus fruits, which are in great demand in Iran.
