    Persepolis (Old-Persian: Pārśapura[1]) was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550–330 BC). Persepolis is situated 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in the Fars Province of modern Iran. The earliest remains of Persepolis date from around 515 BCE. UNESCO declared the citadel of Persepolis a World Heritage Site in 1979.[2] @ wikipedia.com File:Persepolis recreated.jpg

    Persepolis was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550-330 BCE). Persepolis is situated 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in the Fars Province of modern Iran. In contemporary Persian, the site is known as Takht-e Jamshid (Throne of Jamshid). The earliest remains of Persepolis date from around 515 BCE. To the ancient Persians, the city was known as Pārsa, which means "The City of Persians". Persepolis is a transliteration of the Greek (Persēs polis: "Persian city").

Construction on the ancient "City of the Persians," or Persepolis, began around 518 B.C.E. on a site chosen by Darius I from lands conquered by Cyrus the Great. It took over 100 years to build and was one of the most magnificent cities in the ancient world. Persepolis is located 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in the Fars Province of present day Iran.

Persepolis. The Achaemenian kings took over an hundred years to build it. Alexander the Great took over a day to sack it. A dazzling ruin I'd love to visit someday.
