The present study aims to introduce and investigate Kandovan Village, located in East Azarbaijan Province and Meymand Village, located in Kerman Province, with regard to tourism opportunities and potentials. The significance of this type of architecture is the use of natural rocks as a suitable bed for creating certain spaces that are in accord with human needs. The interaction between human being and the harsh and tough nature in which the man makes his shelter and house distinguishes this type of architecture with other forms. This research is a descriptive-analytic study on two cases of troglodytic architecture. The data are collected from valid sources and documents as well as the opinions of experts in this field. The results of this research could be used in tourism development process and related planning in these two cases (i.e., Kandovan Village and Meymand Village). It aims to offer suggestions for having maximum efficiency in order to achieve objectives related to development of tourism and tourists attraction in the process of quality and quantity development.
