Kandovan Village

Related to Tabriz city (located in East Azerbaijan province) and Osku city
Also known as: Kandowan Village
Kandovan  lies 62 km. southwest of Tabriz and 22 km. south of Oskoo (Osku) in East Azerbaijan Province. 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 having specific architectural features. The intriguing architecture of this village seems to defy all rules and travelers are usually fascinated by its incredible slopes and irreverent paths.  Recently a hotel was built, inspired by and connected to the “style” of the village. The “Rocky Hotel” features beautiful cave interiors with very comfortable living spaces.
