Mohammad Adeli told ISNA that the village faces a tsunami of tourists especially on weekends and holidays.

“Last Thursday and Friday, 40,000 tourists arrived at this historic village”, Adeli said. He maintained that the high number of tourists has put serious pressure on the village’s infrastructure.

He added that they have been forced to close some of the historic sites when tourists arrive in large numbers to prevent damage to the sites.

Abyaneh is located in central Isfahan on the slopes of Mount Caracas.
