Kandovan is a small village near Tabriz city of Iran. Houses are excavated in rocks. The village is 4000 years old. Recently a 5 star Hotel has opened in this village that is excavated in rocks too, like the houses.

Probably a must see when in Tabriz. Interesting but not impressive, it has probably lost part of its enchantment due to tourism.
