Amazing Stair Stepped Villages In Iran

Palangan (meaning leopards in Persian) is a village located 47 kilometers north-west of Kamyaran in Iran's Kurdestan province. This village is spread over both sides of a valley. All of the houses are made of stone and like a staircase they are in a continuous pattern, i.e. the roof of one house is the yard of another house. This village is one of the most beautiful villages of the province not only because of its unique architecture, but also because of its beautiful nature. It is located beside a river which flows into the Sirwan River. This area was one of the important regions of Kurdistan from Saljooqi period on and Palangan Castle which is next to the village over a mountain bears witness to this claim.

The Seven Mile Bridge is a famous bridge in the Florida Keys, in Monroe County, Florida, United States. It connects Knight's Key (part of the city of Marathon, Florida) in the Middle Keys to Little Duck Key in the Lower Keys. Among the longest bridges in existence when it was built, it is one of the many bridges on US 1 in the Keys, where the road is called the Overseas Highway.

There are two bridges in this location. The older bridge, originally known as the Knights Key-Pigeon Key-Moser Channel-Pacet Channel Bridge, was constructed from 1909-1912 under the direction of Henry Flagler as part of the Florida East Coast Railway's Key West Extension, also known as the Overseas Railroad.
