Fortresses in Iran

Iran as an ancient land has been homestead of many people and rulers during its thousands of years history. Being located on West and East connecting routes, on the other hand, made it always witness of battle and invasion scenes. In such a situation, defending measures take major roles and among those, fortresses play the first role. This gallery tries to introduce remnants of historic and in some cases history maker fortresses, in individual galleries.
