Persepolis Iran

Persipolis, the ancient seat of kings of the Persian Empire, and named for Jamsheed Shah.  Situated between modern day Shiraz and Esfahan much has been preserved by the dry climate, and much lost, sometimes by deliberate destruction. Today it is a popular tourist destination and for families from all over Iran. In the woods outside you will find familes at one of their most popular passtimes, having picnics.

More About Persepolis

Persepolis (Persian: تخت جمشید/پارسه) was the ceremonial capital of the Persian Empire during the Achaemenid dynasty. 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) and Parseh. To the ancient Persians, the city was known as Pārsa, meaning "The City of Persians". Persepolis is the Greek interpretation of the name Πέρσης πόλις (Persēs polis: "Persian city").
