Narin Castle (Naryn Castle) of Yazd E-Ticket

Overview

  • Ancient citadel of Meybod
  • Beautiful mud- brick castle
  • One of the fairly well-preserved castle.

Situated in the beautiful city of Meybod in Yazd province, Narin (Narenj or Naryn) is a mud-brick fort, dating back to Achaemenid and Sassanid dynasties. The height of the ruins of this castle reach 40 meters and it is possible to watch over 70 kilometers in every direction from the top of the roof. The castle also has a large underground chamber which was possibly a prison.

The ruins of the structure stands 40 meters (130 ft) high from its base. Although built some 2,000 years ago, it contains what seems to be a type of plumbing system (made out of a kind of mortar called sarooj) which was built into its massive walls. It is also peculiarly similar in design to Ali Qapu palace of Isfahan; it has a terrace high on top of the structure whose circulation is provided by two helical stairwells (whose walls have caved in, making it inaccessible). The structure also has a large underground chamber (filled now by rubble), possibly a prison. Four towers surround the entire compound, and a large gate furnishes access to a large courtyard. The structure seems to have been the victim of numerous earthquakes throughout the ages.

Some believe that the Narin castles are descendants of ancient fire-temples; some of the castles in Narin and Meybod, in Yazd province, are also called nareng castles (orange castles), possibly by folk etymology. The castle at Meybod is currently under study. Yet this castle has not been faring very well.

This building has been built as an old fortress with 3 different floors, each for a different class of society.

Although all outer gates have been destroyed the inner castle still exists. You can still see some of the outer walls.
