Introduction:Nehbandan Castle (Persian:قلعه نهبندان)

National Registration Number: 1934, Age: Islamic Period, Location: Ghaem St., Nehbandan

Made of stratified mud bricks, the great Nehbandan Castle is located inside Nehbandan. According to architecture plans and earthen antiquities, historical background of castle refers to pre-Islamic period such as Ashkanids and Sasanids. The castle was active up to Safavid era during Islamic period, but was abandoned completely when Safavid were ruling. Existence of this castle approves those historical resources claiming that Nehbandan has been founded before Islamic period.
