It’s never too late to discover your passion and the incredible story of Armenian Levon Arakelyan is the best proof. What started out as a simple request from his wife to build a storage space for potatoes, became the project of a lifetime. A 70-feet deep maze of tunnels, stairs and caves, all made by one man.

In 1985, builder Levon Arakelyan’s wife asked him to build a cellar beneath their home, so she could store potatoes. It was a fairly simple task for an experienced 44-year-old builder. However, as he started the project, he literally couldn’t stop carving.
