River stone walls

I mentioned before that there is no sea in Sheki…but there are rivers…small and big…mountain and valley rivers.

People use river stones when building their houses and fences. Usually they start building with river stones and then continue building the same wall with bricks. Its more difficult to build with river stones therefore more and more people are building with bricks.

This is a photo from Sheki Caravanserai (please see my earlier post on Caravanserai). As you can see river stones were partially used to build the walls of it (bottom part). As for me I think river stone walls are much more beatiful and peculiar if compared to walls built with other materials.

I want to thank all of you for your support to my blog. It is very motivating for me. Thank you!

Very nice photograph, Ayten. Stone buildings are fantastic, I'd like to live in one some day.
