It was one of the first Iranian sites to be registered in UNESCO World Heritage List.The persepolis compound,known to Iranians as Takht-e Jamshid,is a very remarkable example of ancient monuments of Iran.The structure is built in the
order of Daruis I the Great of Achaemenid dynasty.Xerxes,his son and successor,built the Gate of All Nations and added a few other places to the city of Parseh and it was then that Persepolis reached its legendary glory.
The legend has it that on a night of drinking Alexander set the Perspolis on fire. Today you can see the remains of the representatives of different nations are carved into the stone.As you walk up the stairs,stone carvings of humans,
plants and animals still communicate the ancient Persians’ideals of Life,Peace and Beauty to you.
