Photographer's Note

This is the picture of Rood khan castle situated 20 kms southeast of Fooman city in Gilan province of Iran.(it is about 1000 years old)
Rood-khan Castle is a brick and stone medieval castle.
This one thousand years old castle occupies an area of about 5 hectares and sits at the two peaks of a mountain, and is fortified by strong fortifications and battlements at a length of 1,550 meters.
In order to get to the castle itself you have to walk and climb through a beautiful jungle for 2 hours and there is a trail which makes climbing easier.
The castle is in amazingly good shape compared to other castles in Iran and the reason for that is the remoteness and inaccessibility of it specially in olden days without the present modern day equipment.
Also it appeals both to nature lovers as well as people who love history and historical monuments.
Because the castle is situated in a thick jungle area, the parts that have not been restored has undergone degradation and somehow become a part of jungle in a very strange and interesting way.
