Babak Khorramdin is so important to Iranians to the point that every year it would every drag tourists and Admirers of Babak Khorramdin to the top of its 2000 meter heights. Khorramdin’s Movement is one of the most important past-Islam social movements in Iran. A movement that, like many other uprisings, sought to establish Iranian independence and honor in the entire region and take away the rights of Iranians from the Abbasi caliphs.
Later on, Babak Pourmardas known as Khorramdin took leadership of Khorramdin’s uprising. More than 22 years in Azerbaijan region and its mountain suburbs (named later as Kurdistan), and also the Central areas of Iran, Babak fought against Arabian forces and Abbasi caliphs and the oppression they did to Iranians, but Mo’atasam, one of Abbasi caliphs, defeated him. This Patriotic group, The Khorramdins, were also defeated by the army of the Abbasi caliph. Not having a strong unity and solidarity with the body of the Iranian society at that time is considered one of the most obvious reasons for the failure of this movement.


But in the meantime, there remained a Historic tail for Iranians and Babak’s name had sealed on this great castle and this historic building became the symbol of Babak Khorramdin’s Movement’s power; that surely was powerful. Because of the inaccessible position of Babak in this high castle, He was unreachable.
The scope of Babak’s territory was the heights that was drawn from east to the Caspian Sea and Shervan Region and Shamakhi, from west to Jolfa district and Nakhjavan and Marand, from north to Aras River’s beach and Moghan hills and from south to near Ardabil and Marand.
