Remains of hundreds of historic underground structures in Iran, which since the past was considered the crossroad of civilizations and the bridge between the East and the West, attest to its advancement in the construction and development of such spaces in ancient times. Keeping up with current technological developments, Iran has contemporarily experienced significant advancements in the construction of underground structures related among others to dams, power plants, water conveyance networks, roads and railways. This illustrated book introduces various underground structures in Iran and reviews their historic and engineering backgrounds in both Persian and English languages.
