This building was built as a large citadel with 4 watch towers and 14-meter high walls at the orders of Karim Khan, founder of Zandid dynasty. The complex was originally used as the ruler’s palace. During Pahlavi era it was converted to a prison and most of its wall paintings was covered using plaster. Renovations started 50 years ago which lasted for several years.
