Alamut Castle

Alamut Castle

 Alamut Castle is built on top of a high rock reaching 2163 m above sea level near the Gazor Khan Village. The rock is 200 m high and covers an area of 20 hectares (49 acres); with its steep slope, deep and dangerous ravine, the rock is practically inaccessible and forms a part of the fort’s structure. Currently only ruins of the fort and some towers are apparent and only through archaeological excavation the main portions can be
discovered.
