News Category:

Sasanian Dynasty

 15 October 2003

 

 

The Rudkhan fort is a large military-administrative fort located 20 km southeast of Fouman in the northern Gilan province.

Sitting atop the Rudkhan village heights, the fort is divided into two eastern and western parts, with the latter bigger than the former.

The eastern section includes 12 entrances, prison, emergency door, bath house as well as several homes while the western part comprises 12 entrance gates, fountain, cistern, cellar, bath house, alcove and some homes encircled by bulwarks.

Preliminary evidence uncovered by digging indicate suggest the foundation of the structure was built in the Sasanian era and rebuilt in the Seljuks reign. Still, there is no precise information regarding the date of its construction.
