The same is located at a distance of 12 km. from the Qamechoqay village of Bijar, and to the north of the Bijar - Takab Road. This archaic castle can be accounted for as a matchless one in the province, and dates to the 9th or 8th centuries BC. To the west of this structure, there is an area, a hundred meters in depth that adjoins the western platform of the castle by a difficult path. The founders of this construction, in this sector have committed a feat in constructing ramparts with a length of approximately 100 m. and to a height of 15-20 m. The same has been built of large stones, causing an additional fortification. This style of architecture, being the general trend of the times is related to the first millennium BC. On the northern fringes of the castle, is a crevice skillfully sculptured. Whereas in the northeast, is a long flight of stairs that have witnessed three periods of settlement named as, the Medes, Arsacids and Parthian. During the Mongol period, a small altar with four steps was constructed which is also another interesting remnant. The construction of sun-baked brick dwelling and so too brick ones, in the eastern limits and on the Sassanid structures are yet a typical Mongol characteristic.
