With ruins dating back as early as 515 BCE, Persepolis ruins (a World Heritage Site), present a singular look at ancient Persian architecture. The city, built from grey limestone and marble, served as the capital of the Achaemenid Empire, originally built up under the reign of Darius I. Ransacked and pillaged by armies of various empires over the centuries, including by Alexander the Great in 330 BCE, few structures remain intact. Check out the ruins of the gate, with their carved-horse reliefs, and the "Apadana" building, where emperors greeted foreign visitors that contains intricately carved staircases.

可算是伊朗在其中一個最重要的景點。公元前518年大流士一世 (Darius I) 興建, 歷時 150 年經歷三代才大功告成, 下午3:30在酒店出發, 4:30到達波斯波利斯, 參觀2小時順道欣賞黃昏日落後才離開回酒店。但6點景點職員已催促遊客離開, 我們沒有時間爬上高點觀景台俯瞰波斯波利斯全景, 所以最好還是提早到來, 預留足夠時間參觀。 more »is one of Iran's most important spots. 518 BC I (Darius i) was happy to build, 150 years of experience in three generations before the success, 3:30 in the hotel, 4:30 to reach Persepolis, the observation of 2 hours on the road to appreciate the yellow and sunset before leaving the hotel.
