This castle also known as the Atash-Kadeh, is a castle located on the slopes of the mountain on which Ghaleh Dokhtar is situated on. Ardeshir castle was built back in 224 AD by Ardeshir I of the Sassanian empire, it is located 2 km north of the ancient city of Gor in Fars province. The structure contains three domes, among other features, making it a bit larger and more magnificent than its Predecessor the nearby castle of Ghaleh Dokhtar. From the architectural design it seems the Palace was more at a place of social gathering where guests would be introduced to the imperial throne.
