Probably, their fire temple was inside the castle, which is why this area was called Kushk Moghan, which was later changed to Kushmoghan, and unfortunately, the construction on Kushmoghan castle has destroyed it in the last half century. Kushmoghan Castle used to have a moat and people used to enter the castle using bridge boards. Currently the moat around the castle remains somewhat intact.
