Every location on Earth has varying temperatures. Some areas are too hot and too cold while a few areas have moderate temperatures throughout the year.

In this article, we'll be sharing with you, how come more than 1800 people live in a hole (underground rooms).

Coober Pedy is a town in northern South Australia, located on the Stuart Highway 846 kilometers north of Adelaide. Because of the large quantity of precious opals mined there, the town is often referred to as the "opal capital of the world." The town of Coober Pedy is known for its underground dwellings, known as "dugouts," which were constructed in this manner to avoid the scorching daytime sun.

The town constructs homes and hotels underground to stay cool during the day. The Desert Cave Hotel and the Lookout Cave Underground Motel are the two most famous places to stay.

Let's have a look of some of the underground hotels, restaurants, pubs and churches

In the summer, temperatures can reach 35 to 45 degrees, driving more than half of the town's residents underground, where temperatures remain lower.
