About Dam Dam Castle
Dam Dam Castle was a major battlefield between Kurds and Safavid troops in early 17th century. It is also the name of a mountain near the bank of Urmia Lake. It dates back to pre-Islamic Era according to oral Kurd history. However, in 1609, Amir Khan Lepzerin, the governor of Bradost, who wanted to maintain the independence of its government against Usman and Safavid forces, reconstructed its ruins. Eskandar Beyg has described this castle as a strong fortress consisting of five separate castles with protected tanks and a hole to store ice and snow.
