Abstract:   (5066 Views)
This paper attempts to introduce the social, cultural and physical structure of castle and identify the impact of social, cultural, economic behaviors of residents in the formation of such a unique structure. This castle is considered as one of the few residential castles of Yazd and even Iran. The purpose of this research is to realize a pristine example of native architecture and to use its teachings to overcome life's inconsistencies and fragmentations. In this study, the castle was studied with library and field methods. However, due to position of the castle on the hill slope and consequently the high slope of streets, it was not possible to draw a map based on a fixed height. But it was attempted to correct and complete the map (prepared by the University of Yazd) with the help of aerial photographs and the field search. In addition, a simple sketch was drawn from all available homes, which are reducing day to day. This article is based on the results of limited archaeological excavations, field research, historical study and critical review of the literature. It can be concluded that the castle structure which has been wrapped around a central core over time, is shaped on a social, cultural and religious philosophy. So, understanding the structure is not possible without understanding its concepts and they are inseparable entities.
