Arg-e Tabriz

This huge brick edifice, an unmissable landmark, is a chunky remnant of Tabriz’s early-14th-century citadel (known as ‘the Ark’). Criminals were once executed by being hurled from the top of the citadel walls. Far-fetched local legend tells of one woman so punished who was miraculously saved by the parachute-like effect of her chador.Ongoing construction of a stadium-sized Mosallah Mosque next door is reportedly undermining the Ark’s foundations and access is usually impossible.
