Sasanian Tower Unearthed Near Falakolaflak Castle

 

12 June 2005

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- A team of archaeologists, who recently began the first phase of excavations at Falakolaflak Castle, have unearthed a stone tower dating back to the Sasanian dynastic era (224-651 CE), the director of the team said on Saturday.

“Since the castle had never been excavated, the team began working to clear the architectural structure and study its changes over the centuries,” Ali Sajjadi added.

 

“We found the ruins of the stone tower with remains of walls built with stone and mud bricks around it on the southeastern outskirts of the mount where the Falakolaflak Castle was constructed,” he explained.

 

Located near Khorramabad, in Iran’s southwestern province of Lorestan, the Falakolaflak Castle was built in the Sasanian dynastic era in order to defend the city from invaders.

 

A section of the castle was converted into a museum in 1976, but it was closed until 1989 when it was reopened after some renovation work.
