Nooshabad underground city

April 17, 2012

More than 500 years ago when Mongols started an attack to Iran, people in Nooshabad (a small city near Kashan, Iran) dug a series of tunnels under the city! They used it to supply food, water and any other life infrastructures during attack with out the need of going out of houses!
Many houses had an intrans to the underground web!! You cand find some water and food stores there.
If I’m right they were as deep as 70 meters a little more or less, they are actually grate to see!!
I was there last summer in a travel to center of Iran (Kashan, Chadegan, Abyaneh, …), if you like I can add my other stories too!!
you can see a clip of that in my YouTube and here are some pictures also:
