The image is familiar to me, but perhaps not so for you.
The structure of the old buildings, have given place to the new world.
And it is in our countries, and can be done with a variety of different speeds.
I sometimes think that; people in the past have been more comfortable.
Don't know why? But I think just that the world goes to a bad place .

Salam Mehran. You are right about the past but then the present has also given us some important improvements, especially in medicine. My grand uncle had a small two storey house where the ground floor was made from compacted earth- it was cool in summer and the house was able to breathe. Now houses are full of plastic, glue, formaldehyde,synthetic materials, paint-all of which "sweat" in the heat and give off fumes. A modern house can be a chemical hell for people with allergies.The other good thing about houses like the one in your picture is that neighbours would come and help build such a home and that would cement relationships. Now one family competes against another to have the latest things and often goes into debt in order to impress. I have a friend who is a builder and he refuses to live in a brick house, preferring a wooden house because he says that it breathes and is healthier.Best wishes. Klaudio.

Fine view of the historical rock abode, sturdy and classical construction, similar to our American Southwest Native American structures, some going back over a thousand years.
And yes the Earth was simplier in my youth, and easier to live with, before the modern complexities.
Thanks for sharing,

very interesting indeed.
looking at a house like this one, I can't even begin to imagine how it looks on the inside. It would be great to take a look.
a true cultural photo from Iran.
I've enjoyed viewing it
