  • Falak-ol-Aflak is the most important historical monument in Khorram Abad, the capital city of Lorestan Province, Western Iran. The castle has been used as a military base and prison till around 2000. The building is beautiful and offers 360' view of the city and surrounding river. It is located above a hill with about 50 m elevation and not suitable for disabled people. A great museum about Lur tribes and the history of Lorestan especially Luristan bronze is established inside the castle.
  • A must see for anyone visiting Khorramabad. There is also a museum inside the castle and some of the items on display date back to 3000 years ago.
  • such a beautiful castle! it's very old and highly recommended to visit.

  • A masterpiece of a remnant from the very ancient centuries that represents the ancient Iranian architecture and originality
