I was in Kandovan.

This village lies near 60 km. southwest of Tabriz. From the architectural point of views this village is interesting, as the settlements are rocky dating back to the 7th century AH. or even the pre-Islamic period! These 'houses' resemble caves, being 'dug out' in the mountains and therefore are reputed worldwide. Mineral water in this area is also used for treatment of diseases. There are various other interesting villages in the province of Azerbaijan having specific architectural features.

Kandovan village also has a scenic beauty. It's a popular resort and there are hotels and restaurants there to serve tourists. Its mineral water is also popular by visitors and is believed to be a cure for kidney disease. The unique characteristics of Kandovan along with its magnificent nature provide amusing place to relaxation and has enjoyable time.
