Tower 3

The tower defended by arrows

Tower 3 architecturally belongs to the Upper compound of the Inner Fort of the fortification, constructed at an earlier date. It is a 3-storey structure, open in its entire height, indicating that it served as a defence post. Archaeological excavations have uncovered round cannon balls made of stone and numerous arrowheads (the largest number of arrowheads and arrows for crossbows, roughly 7000 in total, were found in towers 3 and 4).
