Castle Dasaajk was a castle situated on the eastern edge of the Purple Hills in Tethyr.[1][2]


In the 3rd and 4th centuries DR, the location was the site of a fortress and the base of the Holy Warriors of Suffering, a paladin order devoted to Ilmater.

By 1374 DR, the site was occupied by Castle Dasaajk.[1]

In the Year of the Hunted Elk, 841 DR, King Samyte of Tethyr was assassinated in Castle Dasaajk by Uthaedeol the Blooddrenched, a priest of Bhaal, along with his sons.[3]
