ارگ بم کرمان


Arg as a word meant a small citadel, built inside a bigger one or a tower and was designated as the domicile of the kings and state rulers.

Locating on the Silk Road, northeast of Bam in the Kerman Province, Arg-e-Bam is one of the greatest adobe building collections. The Arg-e-Bam collection, including the old city and the citadel extends about 20 hectares in which the Arg and the citadel area is near 6 hectares. The The Arg belonged to the ruler and was the city political and martial centre.

This ancient citadel is composed of several architecture genres such as gigantic walls, stay-awake towers, various gates, mosque, bazaar, Tekyeh, inn, school, bathroom, palestra and residential areas of dignitaries and grass roots and also had a state region, containing barracks, stable, mill, the legion chief domicile and the ruler residence portion which included the ruler’s home, the four season edifice and the look-out tower. North out of the Arg, there exists the great Yakhdan Dome, and the high wall of Yakh Chavon near it.

The Arg-e-Bam belongs to a great system of epochal structures, surrounding it. There has been the ancient town of Darzin on the northwest of today’s Bam, since the first millennium BC and still has got the Islamic first centuries era inter-parish palaces, and just a small village on its western zone is populous now. Around the Arg, on the north of the River Posht Rud there was the Qal’eh Dokhtar, on the east near the Arg the historical Hazrate Rasool Mosque building and on the south there were the Chahar Taaq structure, the palace building and Pir-e-Alamdar. The grass roots or public people region was separated from the dignitaries’ by a high fence along the west-east side and was passable across a gate from the Mirakhor Mason north to the state barracks.
