The township of Bam located to the east of Kerman province, lies 1,283 km from Tehran.

Tracing its origins back to the 6th century BC in the Achaemenid Period, this oasis town and citadel didn’t experience its golden era until the seventh to eleventh centuries when it became one of the significant stops on the Silk Route transporting goods between Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

Devastated by an earthquake in 2003, 99% of reconstruction has now been completed, and once again, the Bam Citadel rises like a Phoenix, with a breathtaking life-size sandcastle towering over a desert oasis you just cannot miss.
