The Bam Citadel with an area of 200 hectares is located on the northeastern part of Bam, at the foot of an enormous rock. It was once the old city of Bam. The old Bam consists of 4 sections and 38 watchtowers. The main materials of the castle were adobe, clay and chaff. It is listed by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage Site: “Bam and its Cultural Landscape”. This enormous citadel on the Silk Road was built before 500 BC, and remained in use until 1850 AD. The planning and architecture of the citadel were ingeniously thought out from different points of view. From the present form of the citadel, one can see that the planner(s) had foreseen the entire final form of the building and city from the first steps in the planning process. After the Bam earthquake of December 26, 2003, that destroyed more than 80% of the citadel, several countries are cooperating in its reconstruction.
