These ancient homes are a marvel of engineering. When they were used, roughly 3000 years ago, the way they were constructed made them able to stand up to earthquakes, windstorms and heavy rain storms that hit the area during the rainy season. Perhaps this is an easy explanation as to why the structures are still standing today.

These "beehive" homes are located in Harran, an ancient city located between the borders of modern day Syria and Turkey. The city is so historically significant that it is even mentioned in the Bible a few times. Over the years, the village, which still stands, has been reduced to a footnote in history.
