Qal'eh Dokhtar

"Dezh Dokhtar" A.K.A. (Ghal'eh Dokhtar) Persian: دژ دختر‎, also known as The Maiden Castle, is a castle made by Ardashir I, in present day Fars, Iran, in 209 AD. It is located on a mountain slope near the Firouzabad-Shiraz road. The name of the castle implies it was dedicated to the Goddess Anahita, to whom the term "Maiden" refers. After capturing Isfahan and Kerman from the Parthians, Ardashir (re)built the city of Gur near the castle in Firouzabad, making it his capital.
