Icehouses were built for reserving snow and ice for summer use. Supplying ice in the plateau used to be very hard. The warm season was long and the cold season short and drinking water was not enough. Snow-covered mountains were not available everywhere. The difference in altitude made it even harder to carry snow down to low areas.
A ditch, a wall and a thick storage structure were intelligent solutions to supply and reserve ice for later use.
There were some technical and cultural aspects involved aswell, like any other structures, which are quite interesting.
