Bandiagara Cliff Dwelling in Mali

The Bandiagara Escarpment is a sandstone cliff in the Dogon country of Mali that rises almost 500 meters (1,640 ft) from the sandy flats below. These cliffs are dotted with ancient cave homes originally carved by the Tellem people to house their dead, but inhabited since the 14th century by the Dogon people. Structures include granaries, houses, altars and community spaces.  ©2013 ZRIM
