            Through the looking glass. Holes in buildings here are known as ‘dragon gates’. These gates are a fengshui concept done with the intention of creating a path for the dragon to go from the mountains to the sea bringing positive energy along with it.

ANCIENT HISTORY

🔘The Minaret of Jam🔘 ⚫It is located in a remote and nearly inaccessible region of the Shahrak District, Ghor Province, next to the Hari River, Afghanistan. ⚫The word minaret is Arabic [منارة] and usually means a tower next to a mosque from which the muezzin calls the faithful to prayer. However it also means lighthouse and has other meanings. ⚫The 65-metre (213 ft) high minaret was built around 1190 . ⚫Covered in elaborate brickwork with a blue tile inscription at the top, it is noteworthy for the quality of its architecture and decoration, which represent the culmination of an architectural and artistic tradition in this region. ⚫The Minaret of Jam belongs to a group of around 60 minarets and towers built between the 11th and the 13th centuries in Central Asia, Iran and Afghanistan. ⚫The archaeological site of Jam was successfully nominated as Afghanistan's first World Heritage site in 2002. ⚫It was also inscribed in UNESCO's list of World Heritage in Danger. ⚫In 2014, the BBC reported that the tower was in imminent danger of collapse. 🕌FOLLOW me @ancient.scientist to enjoy more and more posts about our world's marvelous History.❤ 🚨🚨ALSO⬇⬇👇 📚🎧Listen to🎧 "Games Without Rules" The Often-Interrupted History of Afghanistan.

Be a part of the @allofarchitecture family and see more inspiring work. #Allofarchitecture. [670k+] ▪︎ Farmhouse‘ by @studioprecht | ▪︎ "A modular building system that connects living and farming. The tower features a circular food system with greenhouses, water treatment systems, a root cellar and a farmers market." ▪︎ "During the last 2 centuries, we became disconnected to our food. The process of farming moved out from our sights and out of our minds. Obesity and diabetes are an outcome of our disconnect and one-sided diet. If food reenters the centers of our cities, it reenters our minds and we become reconnected to a life-cycle. This offers a great opportunity for architects!“ ▪︎ Okay wow! Inspired, i love this concept. The same how @hotelnieu regenerates old houses into self sustainable urban farms, this creates the space for new design especially towered buildings to generate rather than just consume. Hats off!

ANCIENT HISTORY

🔘McCaig's Tower🔘 ⚫It is a prominent tower on Battery Hill overlooking the town of Oban in Argyll, Scotland. ⚫It is built of granite with a circumference of about 200 metres (660 ft) with two-tiers of 94 arches (44 on the bottom and 50 on top). ⚫The tower was erected by the architect John Stuart McCaig between 1897 and his death on 29 June 1902 at the age of 78 from cardiac arrest. ⚫McCaig's intention was to provide a lasting monument to his family, and provide work for the local stonemasons during the winter months. ⚫McCaig was an admirer of Roman and Greek architecture, and had planned for an elaborate structure, based on the Colosseum in Rome. ⚫He planed to build a museum and art gallery with a central tower to be incorporated. ⚫Inside the central tower he planned to commission statues of himself, his siblings and their parents. ⚫But unfortunately his death brought an end to the construction with only the outer walls completed. ⚫It is now a public garden with magnificent views to the islands of Kerrera, Lismore and Mull. ⭕FOLLOW me @ancient.scientist to enjoy more and more posts about our world's marvelous History.❤ 🚨🚨🇦​🇱​🇸​🇴​⬇⬇👇 📚🎧Listen to🎧 " The Long Ships" By: Frans G.

            🇮🇹 Torre Scola, Porto Venere, Liguria, Italia.
La Torre Scola o Torre di San Giovanni Battista è un edificio militare che, come altre torri costiere e d'avvistamento del litorale ligure, fa parte di quel sistema difensivo voluto dal Senato della Repubblica di Genova tra il Cinquecento e il Seicento a protezione delle coste e dei borghi. Fu costruita dalla Repubblica di Genova nel 1606, su di un isolotto poco oltre la punta nordorientale dell'isola di Palmaria nel Golfo della Spezia. La torre è a pianta pentagonale con mura spesse circa 4 metri, era in grado di ospitare fino a 8 soldati e 10 cannoni. Con la dominazione napoleonica la torre fu al centro degli scontri navali del 23 gennaio 1800 tra le flotte inglesi e francesi. Nella prima metà del XIX sec., a causa dei danni subiti dalle cannonate, la torre fu abbandonata.

🇬🇧 Scola Towe, Porto Venere, Liguria, Italy.
The Scola Tower or Tower of St. John Baptist is a military building which, as with other coastal and sighting towers of the Ligurian coast, is part of that defensive system wanted by the Senate of the Republic of Genoa between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to protect the coasts and the towns. It was built by the Republic of Genoa in 1606, on a small island just beyond the northeastern tip of the island of Palmaria in the Gulf of La Spezia. The tower has a pentagonal plan with walls about 4 meters thick, it could accommodate up to 8 soldiers and 10 cannons. During the Napoleonic Wars the tower was at the center of the naval clashes of January 23, 1800 between the English and French fleets. In the first half of the nineteenth century, due to the damage suffered by the cannonades, the tower was abandoned.

ANCIENT HISTORY

🔘The Scola Tower🔘 ⚫Torre Scola in Italian ,originally known as the tower of St. John the Baptist. ⚫A magnificent half-ruined fortress of the Gulf of Poets in the coastal region of Liguria in north-western Italy. ⚫It is a military defensive fortress built by the Republic of Genoa in 1606 to protect the coasts and villages. ⚫The fortress was designed to accommodate 8 soldiers (including a bomber and their captain). ⚫The Scola Tower is pentagonal in shape and is about 42 feet tall . ⚫It was built with large blocks of square stone and has a thickness of the walls of approximately 4 feet. ⚫That's why it has survived the violent events and the passage of the time. ⚫Its corners are topped with a turret and an observational opening for the 10 canons which were meant to protect the area from attacks from the sea. ⚫The British bombardment seriously damaged the tower during the naval battle held between the French and the British fleets on 23rd June 1800. ⚫A significant part of the structure was broke down and it was not functional any more and it was completely abandoned very soon after that . 🏖️FOLLOW me @ancient.scientist to enjoy more and more posts about our world's marvelous History.❤ 🚨🚨Also⬇⬇👇🌳 📚🎧Listen to🎧 "Treasure Island "🌲 Audible best seller🎖️ By: Robert Louis Stevenson🖋 📚just click the link in the bio to get the Book for free on Audible.🤑 📻with Audible free trial you get 1 audiobook and 2 Audible Originals choose any thing you like.(just sign-in with your Amazon account) 😍 .

            🇮🇹 Rocca Calascio, L'Aquila, Abruzzo, Italia.
Rocca Calascio, situata a quasi 1500 metri di altitudine, vanta il primato di essere il castello a quota più alta e maggiormente conservato d'Italia. La sua posizione elevata gli ha permesso di essere un punto di osservazione militare strategico, in comunicazione con altre strutture vicine. La fondazione della Rocca risale al XII sec. d.C. con probabile funzione di avvistamento, anche se il primo documento storico nel quale viene citata la Rocca vera e propria risale al 1380. La struttura è realizzata interamente in pietra calcarea locale bianca con blocchi squadrati. Il castello è costituito da un mastio centrale di antica origine e di una cerchia muraria in pietra e quattro torri d'angolo a base circolare fortemente scarpate, costruite nel XV sec. d.C. Il castello, danneggiato dai terremoti, è stato sottoposto a una serie di restauri tra il 1986 e il 1989. 🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️
🇬🇧 Rocca Calascio, L'Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy.
Rocca Calascio, located at almost 1500 meters above sea level, is the highest and most preserved castle in Italy. His elevated position allowed him to be a strategic military observation point, in communication with other nearby structures. The foundation of the fortress dates back to the 12th century AD with probable sighting function, although the first historical document in which the Rocca proper is mentioned dates back to 1380. The structure is made entirely of white local limestone with squared blocks. The castle is made up of a central mastio (the main tower) of ancient origin and a stone wall circle and four corner towers with a strongly sloping circular base, built in the 15th century AD. The castle, damaged by earthquakes, underwent a series of restorations between 1986 and 1989.

Fu eretta a commemorazione del condottiero ed eroe nazionale scozzese Sir William Wallace che guidò i suoi connazionali alla ribellione contro l'occupazione della Scozia da parte degli Inglesi (Guerre di indipendenza scozzesi). Il monumento a lui dedicato fu completato nel 1869 seguendo i disegni dell'architetto John Thomas Rochead. La torre è alta circa 67 metri e realizzata in arenaria secondo lo stile baronale scozzese.
All'interno del monumento sono custoditi artefatti che si ritiene siano appartenuti a Wallace, tra i quali la Wallace Sword, una spada lunga 163 centimetri e dal peso di quasi tre chilogrammi. 🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️
