Description

Desert areas lack grasslands due to low precipitation, so it was impossible to produce fertilizers for agriculture, so people in these areas used bird excrements as fertilizers and to acquire them, they would build buildings in which they put water and food for birds. Over the years these buildings became more advanced and pigeons became the most popular species for this purpose. Aside from the primary use of these towers, they also provided feather, meat and eggs; also some times pigeons were used to send letters. Dovecote of Meybod is among the most intact in Iran.
