The Throne Hall or the Imperial Army's hall of honour (also called the "Hundred-Columns Palace). This 70x70 meter hall was started by Xerxes and completed by his son Artaxerxes I by the end of the fifth century BC.

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").
