 BismEm


These pics are simply classic.  They make you travel right back into the distant past along the time tunnel.  

Absolutely awesome!



700-years-old stone carved houses in Iran.  Amazing!  How beautifully they preserve their heritage.  Many of these homes are in split level and carved on hills.













Following two are old rock homes renovated in modern times

 Hope you enjoyed it.  Please send around.

Thanks dear brother.  What an exhilarating post!  I was truly enthralled  Smiley  Took me right back down the memory lane.  All have their own kind of beauty it's just so hard to say which one is best.  Those stone carved 7 century homes of Iran look as if these were huge rocks and caves, and medieval home builders carved spaces inside of them for making rooms.  Amazing.

Stunning!  These are masterpieces of history.  and yeah, so well maintained though apparently some of the external fixtures like doors and window frames have gone on being updated periodically.  That very first pic is the most amazing of all.  It's like those homes built by being carved right through the standing rocks. The Quran also states the in ancient times people built homes like these.  The Quran mentions about the folks of Aad and Samood how they hew homes in mountains and hills which made them very proud of their skills.

Do all these homes have electricity?

Yes, at present times they do have electricity for sure.  The electric connections might be a bit rudimentary though .. I suppose so.   Wires are also visible hanging outside most of those houses.  Could be electric or telephone wires or both.  As for the last pic of the stone carved homes which looks pretty costly, I'm sure that's been renovated extensively and would definitely have electricity and phone .. even modern electronics like TV, fridge, computer.

This is so, so cooool !!  Mash'Allah .. so exotic.   Most of these homes would never experience the problem of leakage thru the roof no matter how much it rains.  In most of them the tops of the rocks are the roofs.  I would love to spend a few days in such places for a vacation.  The kids would would be delighted  Cheesy  They would go nuts and drive my husband & me nuts too  Grin

And of course, I've been of the old city of Damascus.  It's another spectacular spot.  Once u go there u don't wanna leave.  I don't know what's the atmosphere like now with all those death squads being sent by US whores, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, to create unrest.
