Rayen is a city in Kerman (province). Rayen is everything Bam used to be before the earthquake. Rayen has a historic Arg (fortress) built entirely of sun-dried mud bricks. Its historic city has countless mudbrick houses, some of them unfortunately decaying, but it is this decaying charm that makes the city even more attractive. Feel like an explorer. Be welcomed like a king. See a city, whose beauty is overpowering. Meet people, who enjoy every visitor.
By bus from Kerman. Savari from Kerman.
Everything is in walking distance.
See the citadel, but be cautious not to damage the mud brick construction.
Inside the 'arg' is a small workshop where a craftsman manufactures for sale tools and knives made from wood and steel.
There are small supermarkets between the main square and the 'arg'.
Non alcoholic malt beverages and all other standard drinks are available in the town.
Buses only leave in direction Kerman, but you can hitchhike to Bam. Shared taxis are available at the main square and will leave when full. Be aware that there is a military/police checkpoint between Rayen and Kerman, there may be 'sniffer dogs' looking for drugs.
