Kandovan is located 50 km to the south of Tabriz, Osku, on the northern slopes of a valley at the foothills of Mount Sahand. It is a living example of human adaptation to exceptionally unusual natural surrounding. Natural cones, scattered over a vast area, serve as human dwelling on rock. They seem to have been the work of certain sculptors. People of Kandovan have lived so for the last 1600 years. Legend says the first inhabitants of Kandovan moved here to escape from the invading mongols, They dug hideouts in the volcanic rock and ultimately ended up transforming them into permanent houses. It is now one of Iran's most popular tourist destinations and the rock-houses rival the famous Cappadocia Hotel.
