Really Amazing Civilization in Iran

Really Amazing Civilization in Iran



Kandovan (also spelled Candovan) is a tourist village in the province of East Azarbaijan, near Osku and Tabriz, Iran. Its fame is due to its troglodyte dwellings. Some of the houses are at least 700 years old and are still inhabited. Kandovan is also known for its scenic beauty. A popular resort, it offers hotels and restaurants to serve tourists. Its mineral water is also popular with visitors and is believed to be a cure for kidney disease. source(Wikipedia).

It is a major Iranian Tourist destination as well.

    it’s in turkey. and yes the region is called kapadokya, ürgüp göreme.. these houses are not man made; these are natural formations of volcanic tuff called ‘fairy chimney’. then manking comes and adapts the environment to itself for houses and churches..:)
