Persepolis, Iran XAWC13650

Persepolis, Iran. The palace terrace complex was the capital of the Achaemenid Empire founded by Darius I in 518 BCE. Based on the model of Assyrian and Babylonian palaces, a succession of elements were added by succeeding great kings. The complex is thought to have met its end when Alexander the Great is reputed to have burned Persepolis after 330 BCE. Vertical aerial photograph taken by Aerofilms Ltd. 1950s
