Rudkhan Castle

Rudkhan Castle (Persian: قلعه رودخان‎); is a brick and stone medieval fortress in Iran that was built by the Gilakis to defend against the Arab invaders during the Arab/Islamic invasion of Sassanian Iran.

The castle is built on two tips of a mount, with an area of 2.6 hectares (6.4 acres). Its architects have benefited from natural mountainous features in the construction of the fort.
