LIKE 110 + FAVORITE 8. El ser humano es extraordinario. Estas viviendas recuerdan a las de las hormigas. Impresionante fotografía. Saludos desde España. Maravilloso país Irán.

Dear Mahak, this is a great shot : it looks like a gigantic termitary - but man made. Probably we, humans, copied this architecture -:))) LIKE 111 Best wishes to you and Iran, Christa

Dear christa

I myself wondered when i saw this construtions... although i know what they were for but i am sure it has been made by humans or at least has been somehow modified them.

best wishes to you too.


regards, mahak

Hello Mehak, Are you sure these are man-made. Such irregular shapes defies logic. A person would always strive to conserve energy and time, especially so in asian countries where temperature are always high. Anyways, SUPERB SHOT FAV 8 & LIKE 113

Mahak on August 10, 2011

Hello dear bankavatrs

Actually this area has typical natural rocks which locals have made houses out of that. here is a village named Kandovan that you can find somthing around 40-50 houses like this photo:

these are natural rocks that are engraved by human

thanks for your interest and happy to see you liked it
