The village, with an antiquity of more than 3,000 years, is located on the highlands of Mount Binaloud and is home to bizarre-shaped houses that are built on another’s rooftop i.e. the roof of one house is the yard of another.
The village is also adjacent to Nishabour, known for its turquoise handicrafts and mines.
Kang offers its visitors a bizarre scene of architecture that can more or less be found in other parts of the country.
Kang is known as ‘Khorasan’s Masouleh’ that is also a stepped millennium-old village of stacked mud-brick homes in northern Iran, which is soon to be assessed by UNESCO experts for becoming a World Heritage.
