If you’re planning a one-day trip to a beautiful and sandy dessert located close to the nation’s capital we recommend Maranjab.

Another one of the attractions about the area is the Salt Lake and its wondering island. Shah Abbas I named this desert and established a castle in its heart in order to keep the Afghan and Tajik forces from reaching Isfahan and raiding caravans.
