Hawraman Village Architecture

Hawraman Village architecture has been shaped by the climatic and geographical conditions of the area, and the steep slopes of the mountains have created a village which is shaped like a staircase.
The roof of each house is the backyard of another house and is called “Hivan” in the local language.
From the heart of the mountains, they have broken the rocks and cut it. By force and whatever tools they had, they managed to build their homes in the most harmonious way possible with the nature of the region.
And this reflects the resilient spirit of these people.
Walls have been built out of dry stone, without mortar, only by putting rocks on top of each other.
The mountains have separated this village from other cities but they are independent and with the help of materials found in the vicinity they have managed to build a village out of nothing.
When you walking in the alleys, you hear their voices, the smell of their food, and the closeness of the houses, this ultimately brings their hearts closer together.
In addition to being surrounded by mountains, this beautiful village has vast forests and lush jungles trees such as oaks, hawthorns and wild pears have grown in these forests and have greatly enhanced the beauty of this area. People in the village have always used the trees of these forests to warm their homes and cook food.
It is interesting to note that researchers have discovered evidence of a massive structure which is dome-shaped and it entails a number of houses. This shows that humans from the Iron Age lived in the area and it is estimated that this structure dates back to more than 3000 thousand years ago.
It is one of the historic works located in this region and its architecture is related to the western part of Zagros because the dry stone has been used in its design and construction. Near Tangivar village they have found an inscription which has been preserved from the Assyrian times. Pictures of the Assyrian ruler, “Sargon II”, are engraved on this inscription, as well as a cuneiform banner, which, after translating it by experts, refers to the attacks of Assyrian rulers on the Ultraman and Zagros regions.

Archaeologists have found a number of animal skins in the village, believing that they date back to the Parthians and Seleucid Empire and were engraved in Pahlavi and Greek. All these historical information was apparently carved inside a dish, somehow Dr. Saeed Kordestani would give those as gifts to the British and they would store these valuable items in the museum of their country. At that time, it seems that people wrote their own sales documents on the skin of animals, and as it turns out the skin they found was actually a transaction record of land between two people, and their names were written on the skin. The researchers estimate that it dates back to about 120 years before the birth of Christ.
