Troglodyte village in IRAN

pic04381

In the north east of Iran at the foot of Mount Sahand in Kandovan, the villagers live in cave homes carved out from the volcanic rock.

The age of some these [troglodyte] houses is more than 700 years.

Very impressive…

  1. So impressive kada! But I wonder if it is going to be damn hot out there, since they are all carved in volcanic rock…rock itself usually generates additional heat, and this will def be more hotter. But hats off to the idea!
