Abyaneh is located at the foot of Karkas Mountain, 70 kilometers southeast of Kashan in Isfahan province, in Iran. The ancient village is a muddle of narrow and sloped lanes, and crumbling mud-brick houses with lattice windows and fragile wooden balconies that cling to the slope. The terrain around Abyaneh contains iron oxides which give it a reddish colour, and because the houses are built with mud bricks they have the same colour as the rock above the village.
ET, this is an interesting topic and there are certainly thousands of them that can be added to the GEC by the copy/paste method. As I've said before, limited quoting is fine, but please use the Quote feature, or quotation marks for short ones. I am again requesting that, instead of copy/paste text, please write about the topic yourself. It's also best to use more than a single source for a richer and more informative post.
