There are some isolated villages in the eastern Iran that it seems nothing has been changed there after thousands years, one of them is Makhunik:
Makhunik, Iran’s isolated Lilliput
About 140 kilometers southeast of Birjand, near the Iran-Afghanistan border, there is a remote village with small adobe houses.
With 120 families and a population of about 600, inhabitants of Makhunik village are almost completely isolated from modern civilization, the Persian service of IRNA reported on Friday.
Unusual architecture has been employed, and there are no square or rectangular-shaped houses in the village.
The dwellings are built next to each other. The houses are less than two meters in height and each covers an area of 15 square meters. The doors of the houses are less than one meter in height.
