Photographer's Note

Qalat is an old village around Shiraz with so much different architecture from villages around.
i think two thing so much effect on their architecture. one of them is their cold winters,be cause Qalat placed on high altitude, in embrace of a high mountain that it has frozen small waterfalls until spring some cause of that you can see there short doors.
when Arabs attacked Iran, in Sasanian period(224-651 A.C),lots of Iranian people escaped from big cities, with every religion, to mountains,forests or deserts and still you can see Iranian old architectures in those places,faraway from big cities and Arabs access.
it is second cause of different architecture that you can see rocks for made houses there and vaults, those are two features of Sasanian architecture.
there is still remain from an old church that had been used before Iranian revolution(1979).
if you want to see that church, see work shop.
