Eastern Castles vs. Western Castles

I bet you're thinking "hey! we already have a thread like this!", but castles are different from palaces. Palaces are residences, but castles are mostly fortifications. So, which do you like better? Not only in style of the building itself, but surroundings, gardens, etc.

As long as there are no "American Castles" in question

But do you mean Europe vs Asia? Unfortunalty I only know European ones myself and the ones I visited in Asia were European fortresses, that doesn't count

Castel or Residence

This is a castle on top of the rock

Afyon Castle - Western Turkey



Diyarbakir Castle - Southeastern Turkey[IMG]





I dont know why you guys sending pictures of residences.. Castle is a fortress to protect the city and its people when infiltrators attack the city no? and generally population lives in the castle-city...I thought every city in Europe and Middle East have castles???

Lol no point in comparison. Western castles win by a million.

This is like comparing Hadrian's wall to the Great Wall.
