The so-called "Maiden Castle" is a large fortification built by Ardashir I in the early third century AD. It is located about 8 kilometers to the north of Firuzabad in modern Iran. Despite the distance involved, it is listed as part of the "cultural landscape of Bam" in the 2004 UNESCO World Heritage List.
