Tiny Homes Carved In Rock...

Tucked away in a remote corner of Iran is the amazing village of Kandovan.
This village, carved out of rock, is famous not only for it's scenic beauty but for the unique dwellings of it's residents.
Believed to be more than seven hundred years old, it was created when those fleeing the advancing Mongol army took to the caves to hide.
I found this wonderful place when visiting, but if you want to actually go there, it's located in Iran's East Azerbaijan Province about sixty kilometres south of the provincial capital Tabriz in Osku County.
Between a rock and a hard place...
