4 step back to history
There is a historical castle called "Ghoortan" near Varzaneh Desert, that has been constructed during Diyalameh dynasty. There are many old castles in central Iran dating back to more ancient times than "Ghoortan Castle" does, but this one is known for being home to some locals until today! Don’t forget to visit Kabootar khaneh (dovecote or pigeon’s house) with its special architecture style and pigeon holes. These constructions were used for keeping the pigeons and using their eggs and dung.
