This Unique And Highly Advanced Pipeline of the Middle Ages Raised The Water to 200 Meters Without Any Pump

Archaeologists have long been interested in the ruins of the Alamut castle, which are located in the Qazvin province of contemporary Iran, but so far, nothing has been discovered in this structure.

According to the publisher of the TehranTimes, Iranian archaeologists recently discovered something incredible here: running water that is at least ten centuries old.

The mountain castle of Alamut was established in the 9th century and served as a shelter and a safe base for the early Ismailis, the assassins, who were renowned as the Crusaders’ intractable adversaries.

Specialists were surprised to discover the remains of a water supply system, which included a dam and a sophisticated system of tunnels and gutters that allowed water to rise to a height of at least 200 meters, among the ruins of the once-thriving citadel of the Assassins.

Because the fortress was at the top of the mountain, such a complex engineering structure providing water for the residents of Alamut astounds modern man, who believes that there was nothing like it in the Middle Ages, even in “civilized” Europe.

It turns out that the people who lived in modern-day Iran at the time had a much higher level of civilization than medieval Europe. This, however, is not the only indication of an unpleasant historical fact that the present Western culture refuses to acknowledge and embrace…

By the way, there are many more ancient aqueducts in Iran; for example, in the city of Gonabad, there is Karez, which is 3,000 years old and has been working for the last 40 years, delivering pure drinking water to 40,000 people.
