  1. I came to this site from the Wikipedia article on Masouleh & I am very glad that I did. What a feast for my eyes these photographs are. I can see that Masouleh is a destination for any time of the year. Although, I think it probably best to leave the New Year’s summer celebration for the villagers to enjoy with each other.
    Thanks for the lovely pictures.
