Kiya Buzurg Ummid captured the castle from Rasamuj and rebuilt it into a major stronghold using local labour. He was appointed by Hasan Sabbah as its governor.Only ruins remain of this magnificent fortress today. Very deep valleys surrounding the fortress make it impossible to access from the East and West sides.
