Varzaneh is an ancient central Iranian desert town in the Iranian province of Isfahan, still showing evidence of its 5,000 year old civilization.
Varzaneh remains the last civilization on the Zayanderud River since 5,000 years ago. The Zayanderud River ends at Gavkhouni wetland, which is 30 kilometers east of Varzaneh.
Within the lands between the wetland and Varzaneh, signs of a very ancient civilization are unearthed. Further investigations on some pots confirm the fact that the district of Varzaneh has been inhabited for 5,000 years.
Varzaneh is famous regionally and all over the world for its spectacular desert, which ranked as one of the most accessible deserts of Iran, in particular for tourists coming to the city of Isfahan.
