Following an urban construction project in Sanandaj, in the western province of Kurdistan, parts of the city's old fortress were unearthed.

According to Head of Kurdistan cultural heritage department Mohammad Ibrahim Zare’i, the construction project was stopped due to the important discovery and the experts of the department have started digging boring pits and research in order to find more parts of the fortress.

Studies on the history of the historical monument indicate that the main fortress of Sanandaj _ Saneh Dez _ has been built at the reign of Shah Safi, dating back to AD 1636.
