Among the many artistic landmarks of Kerman, Rayen Castle is one of the most substantially significant of them all. It is claimed that Rayen Castle is the second largest adobe structure in the world after Arg-e Bam, the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site. It might seem interesting to know that until just 150 years ago, Rayen Castle was home to its residents. Its construction dates back to Sasanid era, before the emergence of Islam. No ruler could have ever invaded this castle during history and this is what Rayen Castle takes pride in.
