The skirts of the groves of ancient Castel(Iranshahr, Sistan and Baluchestan Province)
Zabol in Sistan plain, we started with and after passing from Zahedan, Khash Mirjaveh and in Balochistan, we are now way Iranshahr… Iranshahr and Castel leaf in the history of this province are attractive and not introduced.
The Khash Khash and Iranshahr approximately 150 km away and a little later two-lane exit road and then the road will be resumed bilateral Province. Air conditioning Khash city that almost 1,400 meters above sea level is gradually forgotten, and we gradually approached the warm air to show off Iranshahr.
Village skirts, skirts district center 30 kilometers from Iranshahr, our first destination. The county is having a blessing because works skirt eyes watered and groves, and in between the palm groves farms onions, fava beans and tomatoes and even rice can also be seen.
New Year is here and the season is fertilize the palm trees, men who are busy doing to help pollination, clusters inside the pods on the tree of their male tree. In some tropical regions than the work done in March.
The path skirts the famous gate pass and we are going to Iranshahr. Destination downtown. There is Nazareth where the castle is located. Regional crowded market in nearby Iranshahr.
قلعه خشتی ناصری که حالا از آن چیزی جز حصار باقی نمانده و متاسفانه تخریب شده به واقع یکی از قلعه های بزرگ استان سیستان و بلوچستان پس از بمپور است که ساخت آن به دوره قاجار باز می گردد و مقر حکومتی بلوچستان بوده و در دوره های دیگر also has military uses, this place in the past, users have school until the whole interior was destroyed strange decision.
Large area of the castle square is indicative of the full set. Come out of the castle, Castel car parking is across the street.
And burning noon sun is low on patience Iranshahr. Heritage guides who were from Nazareth Castle Information patchwork of villages and sand dunes nearby Castel I said,. But time and weather did not allow more patrols. However, should this part of the trip before going to the soldier completed.
Castel way we. Ayranhshr from the city center to the castle Castel 27 km route in advance. Johnny rusty sign and represents the place name refers to the ancient fortress of Castel and to explore. I read in the manual that the hill fort on its heritage and its history is so unclear artificial Bnashdh, and refers to the period of Nadir Shah and suspected earlier than the time.
The hill up the soil is very soft soil and soil temperature on foot wearing sandals feel. Fences made of mud brick passed and now we are in the center of Castel Castle. Distributed query history of the region is pushed back even to the Sassanid. However, the fort was an important center for years has been the seat of government and more than one hundred years of struggle between government forces and local authorities who have been so devastated.
Following ancient and historical monuments in the province is very hard. Multiplicity of works, road distances, high, severe degradation -The way that works for ordinary visitors, there is nothing available supply- And lack of information about them is very evident. I hope one day off with a good strategy and low cost potential to become tourism opportunities. Return to Iranshahr and its going to be one of the most beautiful city in the province prepare our soldiers…
