Saroo Castles

Related to Semnan city (located in Semnan province)
These castles are located 10 km. northeast of Semnan in the mountainous region of Saroo. With the passage of time, the northern castle is in a demolished state, leaving behind only a skeleton. The southern castle comprised of three floors. The first floor was used to house beasts, the floor above this was used by the tenants of the land, and the remaining floor was utilized by the commanders. This floor also contained the temple, bath and a sort of pantry. In the four corners of each of these castles are towers of great interest. The original construction of these castles are related to the 'Peeshdadians' and the 'Kianians'. These castles were a place of gathering for the Bataenian sect for a period of two centuries.
Semnan is located 216 kilometers east of Tehran in north central Iran. It is home to Semnani languages and is known as Seman locally.
