Traces of waters footsteps can rarely be found in history of Kashan. Traces
which Sohrab Sepehri, a contemporary figure of Kashan, showed us and its
meaning runs deep in our mythology. In this article, we believe that tracing
water’s footsteps gives us a better source and description on the social
history of this city. Based on the recent documents about Kashan, this essay
finds an important clue about the history of Kashan in the written reports of
the “water ceremony, which was held in the Ardehal region, at the same time
as the Tiregan ceremony, which was held every year in the Ghalhar village.
This article struggles to give a new perspective on the history of Kashan
based on the analysis of water ceremonies in the 3rd century A.H. and the
remaining ceremonies until today (Abrizan in some villages in the Ardehal
region and Latto ceremony in Kashan in the Pahlavi era) and to pave the way
for furtherer studies into these water ceremonies.
