Itinerary



In this online tour we visit the Legendary City of Persepolis, the former capital of Darius the Great which was founded in 512 BC.

There was no more impressive construction in the ancient world than Persepolis, except perhaps the Karnak in Egypt. Darius built the terrace, Apadana (great audience hall), Tachara (a palace), and the Monumental Staircases; his son, Xerxes, added the Harem and the Hall of 100 Columns.

Alexander the Great entered Persepolis in January 330 BC and then committed an uncharacteristic act of wanton destruction that still mystifies historians today, burning the mighty city to the ground.

Though a shadow of its former self, the soaring pillars, terraces and sculptures of Persepolis still remain, but probably most impressive are the bas reliefs which line the site, telling the story of ancient governors and kings that came to Persepolis to pay tribute to the Persian Emperors.
