Saro castles consist of two very strong and unconquerable castles located 10 km northeast of Semnan in the mountainous region of Sarou. The northern castle (small Saroi) has been somewhat destroyed due to time and natural disasters and inclination. Southern castle (Great Saroi) is one of the most important fortresses in the east of Iran, which seems to consist of three floors.

  • More Info

    In the post-Islamic period, considering that the state of Qomes (current Semnan) was considered one of the most important centers of the Ba'athian sects (the Ism â¯l¯s), the Saro castles, located at a very safe and invisible point, have been in existence for over two centuries The gathering center has been used by the active members of this sect. Perhaps one of the main causes of the sustainability of the residents of the castle of Gurkouh (Gonbadan castle) years after the collapse of the castle of Alamut (the capital of the Ismailis of Iran), was in possession of large and far-reaching Saro and the storage of enough food there, as well as the distance between the castles of Sarou to the castle Girkouh is 80 kilometers away, and 60 kilometers from the road.
