Restoration of Alamut Fortress takes 10 Years Time

 

19 May 2004

 

 

 

Complete restoration of the fortress of Hassan Sabbah, the lord of Alamut, will probably take 10 years to finish, head of the site’s explorations team said.

Two thousand square meters of the ten thousand square meter fortress, considered the largest and most important fortress of the Ismailids, which withstood the Seljuks for 170 years, have so far been restored.

According to head of the restoration team, Hamideh Choubak, during the past three years the floors, remaining walls, towers, and decorations of two thousand sq. meters of the site have been restored and preserved. Another activity has been the registration and maintenance of items and structures discovered in the area during four seasons of excavations.

The repair works of the main tower of the Alamut Fortress, called also the Eagle Nest, will soon start, probably taking two months to complete.
