Roodkhan Castle, is a brick and stone medieval fortress in Iran that was built by the Talyshs to defend against the Arabinvaders during the Arab/Islamic invasion of Sassanian Iran. With the fall of the SassanidEmpire, this area became a defensive position against the Arabs in the then-newly established Tabarestan.
Located 25 km southwest of Fuman city north of Iran in Gilan province, it is a militarycomplex which had been constructed during the Sasanian era (224-651), and later rebuilt during the Seljuq era by the Nizari Ismailis. The castle is built on two tips of a mount, with an area of 2.6 hectares (6.4 acres). Its architects have benefited from natural mountainous features in the construction of the fort.
The Rudkhan Castle River originates in the surrounding heights and flows from south to north.
