Visit Persepolis in Iran

Persepolis (/pɝˈsepəlɪs/ was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550–330 BC). It is situated 60 kilometers (37 mi) northeast of the city of Shiraz in Fars Province, Iran. The earliest remains of Persepolis date back to 515 BC. It exemplifies the Achaemenid style of architecture. UNESCO declared the ruins of Persepolis a World Heritage Site in 1979.

The site includes a 125,000 square meter terrace, partly artificially constructed and partly cut out of a mountain, with its east side leaning on Rahmat Mountain. The other three sides are formed by retaining walls, which vary in height with the slope of the ground. Rising from 5–13 metres (16–43 feet) on the west side was a double stair. From there, it gently slopes to the top. To create the level terrace, depressions were filled with soil and heavy rocks, which were joined together with metal clips.


تخت جمشید یا پارسه یا پرسپولیس، پرسه‌پلیس، هزارستون، صدستون یا چهل‌منار، نام یکی از شهرهای باستانی ایران است که طی سالیان، پیوسته پایتخت باشکوه و تشریفاتی پادشاهی ایران در زمان امپراتوری هخامنشیان بوده‌است. در این شهر باستانی کاخی به نام تخت جمشید وجود دارد که در دوران زمامداری داریوش بزرگ، خشایارشا و اردشیر اول بنا شده‌است و به مدت حدود ۲۰۰ سال آباد بوده‌است. در نخستین روز سال نو گروه‌های زیادی از کشورهای گوناگون به نمایندگی از ساتراپی‌ها یا استانداری‌ها با پیشکش‌هایی متنوع در تخت جمشید جمع می‌شدند و هدایای خود را به شاه پیشکش می‌کردند.
