The most important fortresses for defense purposes are the Eğil Castle. In historical sources, the castle was built by the Assyrians. The castle is resting on a natural rocky ground and surrounded by deep valleys on three sides, and the other side has been carved and its strategy has become an important structure. In the era of Assyrians, probably only the inner fortress was built and later the outer fortress was added. The fortress is fortified with fortification walls and bastions, and the outer ramp starts right next to the valley and continues along the southern slope.
On the surface of the steep rocky area to the north of the fortress, the rectangular panel obtained by rectification of the rock draws the attention of the Assyrian king relief and a cuneiform written inscription that cannot be read. The King of Assyria III. Salmanassar (859–824 BC) is considered to belong to.
Tunnels obtained by carving the main rock in the Eğil Castle were identified. The tunnel, which starts right at the top of the tombs and goes down to the Tigris River, consists of 177 steps. The presence of the tunnel is clearly visible from the outside due to the collapse and spills.
Descriptive information about the castle and descriptive images are first seen in the work named Şerefnah of Bitlis. Eğil Castle in Şerefname; Ve It is a strong castle built on a slanted arch, and it is so high that fear and prejudice dominate anyone who looks after it. When one of the saints passed by, he pointed to the arch and said, or Get down! ’ on top of that, the arch has been bent and oblique with the permission of Allah. bun
