  • A Citadel still under renovation which allows to see the bricks of different colors used. The structures of the Citadel and the arrangement of the areas are very interesting. The mountains on the horizon are beautiful. I loved the small Bazaar where are sold splendid knives and carpets to the original drawings. Rayen is a gem. You can also take a tour in the city which is green and inviting

  • This Sassanid Citadel occupies an area of 2 ha at the top of a hill and is the second largest citadel in the world built with mud bricks, after Bam. A mud brick is a brick made of Earth or silt mixed with straw, dried in the Sun. As Bam, it was significantly damaged during the earthquake in 2003. Renovation and reconstruction work is underway with a team of Masons who prepare bricks and mud. The Citadel contained a mosque, a bazaar, a part reserved for winter and summer habitat, a river, houses reserved for the elite and others in the population.

  • Fortified citadel built in adobe and was probably a desert town at the time of the Sassanida dynasty. The walls and part of the inner constructions were recovered and rebuilt. Are in very good condition. HA cisterns, stately homes, cooling towers and water pipes coming from the nearby mountains. A part of the town wasn't rebuilt but is well preserved. To highlight the area of rest and food and water for the animals.
