The ruins of a stone building were located on a rock spur in the Revand River gorge, in mountains about 40 km northwest of the city of Sabzewar. Building construction phases were reconstructed based on the results. The peculiar location and the substantial effort put in its construction suggest the exceptional function of the structure.
