In a remote corner in Iran’s South Khorasan Province, near its border with Afghanistan, is a village that, until about a century ago, was inhabited by people of very short stature. Indication of their dwarfism is found in the local architecture. Of the roughly two hundred stone and clay houses that make up the ancient village, seventy or eighty of them are of exceptionally low height. These adobe dwellings are less than two meters tall with narrow doorways that cannot be entered without stooping. Some of these houses have ceiling as low as 140 cm.

Makhunik is a village located in the southern Khorasan province, 20 kilometers from the border between Iran and Afghanistan. Difficult region, surrounded by mountains.

Makhunik is known to the natives as Dwarven Village.

No dwarfs were found in the area, but if we take what local residents say seriously, in a certain period, this village was inhabited by dwarfs.
