Samooran Castle

Related to Jiroft city (located in Kerman province)
This castle has been built of reddish marble and is located on an elevation, east to the city of Jiroft. The upper walls are approximately 1,000 sq. m. and are made of rocks and natural precipices. In parts where the enemy could have launched an attack, there are high walls with two entrances in the northern and southern sides with twelve watch towers. To an elevation of 200 m. above the castle is another stony rampart and this surrounds the castle itself. Within these walls was an area for the horses, and a relatively deep well still holds good after the passing of centuries. Its mode of construction is really marvelous. There are also two pools in this castle which collect the rain water. The brick walls of these pools have been delicately covered with a mixture of sand and limestone. This structure is related to the pre-Islamic times, but has been repaired in the early Islamic era. During the Saljuqi period, this castle was a reputed one.
