Girl Castle

Girl Castle was a stronghold and an important obstacle for enemy passage through the Tangab Valley. The general features of the architecture and especially the comparison of the palace inside this castle with that of Ardeshir palace in Firouzabad plain show that the girl’s castle was founded by Ardeshir Babakan, founder of the Sassanid Emperor, during his clashes on the road to Pars and before the victory. His final is built on the great King Parthian, Ardavan V in 224 AD.

The main fortifications of the Daughter Castle include a continuous outer wall that extends over a mountain on a sloping cliff and encloses the overall shape of a trapezoid. These fortifications started from the lower part of the valley to Tangab and extended to the highest part of the mountain where the inner castle of the castle is located. The geometrical mode of the palace, which is located on several levels, is in complete contrast to the non-geometrical mode of the castle, which is built on the natural shape of the mountain. The walls of the main wall of the castle (the outer wall) are decorated with alternate recesses, like the outer walls of the inner palace. At two separate points the barrows extend from the cliffs to the river. The walls seem to control the ancient road, which is almost the present-day road crossing the castle.

The Castle of Daughter Castle includes the residential and royal section of Daughter Castle and is located within its fence. In fact, due to its strong and defensive walls, the palace is a small castle located within the larger outer fence of the girl castle. The palace was built on a large rocky bulge in the upper part of the castle. To build the palace, first artificially prepare the site at three elevation levels, and then build a palace with a rectangular structure of 120 meters (east-west) and 40 meters wide (north-south), on the surfaces. They have created the trilogy. To build the entrance palace, the palace is rectangular in its southeast corner. Each level contains various architectural spaces that are interconnected to create staircases. At the top of the palace is a magnificent veranda leading to a domed hall, the tallest part of the palace.

The architectural decorations of Ardashir Palace are simple yet eye-catching. The exterior walls of the palace are decorated with shallow vertical shafts and troughs. The main rooms have deep shafts, the exterior of which is decorated with plastered Egyptian guillotines. Given the architectural features of the palace, and in particular its comparison with other Ardashir palaces located in the Firouzabad plain as well as other archaeological evidence, it has now become increasingly clear that the Castle of Daughter by Ardeshir Babakan is a royal residence and Also a fortified fort, before his final victory over the last Parthian king, Ardavan V in 224 AD. it was made.
