LONDON, (CAIS) -- Kangelu Castle in southeast of Doāb of Savadkuh district, will be excavated for the first time. During the preliminary research a number of objects date back to the Sasanid dynasty were discovered.

“Studies about paths through the castle and historical area of Savādkuh have been done,” head of the excavation team, Saman Sortichi, said.

During the project a three dimensional map will be prepared and also discovered artefacts will be analysed to provide new information about the historical site, he added.

Kangalu Castle located on an isolated mountain; it is constructed out of stone and mortar with high walls. On the northern and southern sides of the walls two solid towers were symmetrically built. The castle dates back to the Sassanid dynastic era (224-651 CE), and archaeologists believe that the castle was used as a religious centre.
