Description

The legendary city of Persepolis, is the former capital of Darius the Great and founded in 512 BC. Although set on fire and destroyed by Alexander in a gesture symbolizing the destruction of Persian imperial power, its still impressive ruins permit a fairly complete reconstruction of its original appearance.

The complex comprised nine structures, Apadana (hypostyle receiving hall), Trachara (Palace of Darius I), Council Hall, Treasury, Throne Hall, Palace of Xerxes I, Harem of Xerxes I, Gate of All Nations, Tomb of the King.

The city’s remote location kept it a secret from the outside world, and it became the safest city in the Persian Empire for storing art, artifacts, archives, and keeping the royal treasury.

Persepolis as well was an official place for celebrating Persian New Year (Nowrooz). In this tour we will discover this complex together with interesting points that you have never heard before.
