These buildings are 6-700 years old and represent the era of Islam. When Islam was leading in world science and technology. Truly a wonderful mark from history. It's called the "Manhattan of the desert". It might not look special now. But remember that these are ancient and where like the skyscrapers from a sci fi movie.

I think these are the tallest buildings you can make without steel and concrete. It wont be stable with mud and bricks.
