Persepolis

Things to do - general

The centre of the great Persian Empire, the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenian and the showpiece of Achaemenian art, Persepolis (Capital of Persia, in Greek) is a historic treasure in Fars Province, 60 km to the north-east of Shiraz. The most important royal buildings were built by Darius the Great (521-468 BC) as the focus of the mighty Achaemenian Empire nearly 2500 years ago. The planning of the buildings, though executed during the reign of successive monarchs, was conceived as a whole.
Although put on fire and destroyed by Alexander the Great (331 BC) in a gesture symbolising the destruction of Persian imperial power, its still impressive ruins suggest its original magnificent appearance. The complex consists of several small and large palaces, a government treasury and some guard-houses. A large part of these palaces has been constructed in black and white stones, and the stone relieves depict different ceremonies of the Achaemenid courts.
