Photographer's Note

The Bampoor castle located in the north of the Bampoor city is one of the famous castles in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan. It sits on a simulated hill to dominate its surroundings. There are high walls and four towers around the castle and adobe and clay are the main material used in its construction. Like the most castles in Iran, it contains both the public and the aristocratic quarters used in residential and defensive purposes.
The monument dates back to the Sassanid and Parthian eras and for a long period of time the Bampoor castle has been the center of government in Baluchestan.

I found it a very interesting historical place , although it needs to be renovated before its complete ruination!
