Dust of the Day :: Bam
Bam, a city in southern Iran, was built around the ancient fortress of Arg-é Bam which has guarded the Silk Road for over 2,000 years. On December 26 2003, an earthquake devastated both the adobe city and the ancient citadel, the world's largest -- and probably oldest -- mudbrick structure.
