Throwback Sunday... Had I listened to people and believed media's portrayal of this country, I wouldn't have seen this historic site. Viva Iran! #travelphotography #Travel #instatravel #persianempire #Persepolis #instaphoto #globetrotter #globetrotting #lovinglife #AncientPersia
Fascinating lecture by Liora Freud of @tauarchaeology on those left behind in #jerusalem after the First Temple destruction and subsequent exile to #babylonia. Meticulous restoration efforts revealed an identifiable #babylonian period with likely poor and unskilled population and unimpressive administration before #persians took over. ------------ #ancientneareast #ancienthistory #archaeology #persianempire #firsttemple #babylon #ancientisrael

See on the top of the hill? It's the tomb of Artaxerxes III (... If I'm not mistaken). It is one if the two royal tombs that exist in Persepolis. On the upper part of the tomb, there is a a relief showing a king standing on a platform that is carried by people who were the representative of all the nations in the Achaemenid Empire. #persepolis #persianempire #achaemenid #wheninshiraz #wheniniran #tomb
Tachara (Palace of Darius the Great) Despite the fact that this one is the oldest palace in Persepolis, Tachara has remained well-preserved. People believed that the Palace of Darius was spared when Alexander the Great burned down Persepolis. According to the inscription, the palace was built by Darius, however, he did not see the form when it was finished. The completion of the construction was done by his sucessor, none other than his son: Xerxes I. #persepolis #persianempire #tachara #persia #wheniniran #wheninshiraz #dariusthegreat
Eastern Facade of Apadana or the audience/throne hall. The reliefs display a close ties between Persian and Median soldiers. In the Apadana, 23 dignitary groups from different provinces of the empire also being represented. From Parthians and Bactrians who came from Central Asia to Lydians from Turkey, even the one from Ethiopia! Every nation was carved beautifully according to what their 'delegate' brought/wore. #relief #apadana #persepolis #persianempire #wheniniran #wheninshiraz #ancientruin
The Gate of All Lands or the Gate of All Nations is the first structure that will greet you once you enter Persepolis. It is built by King Xerxes (486 - 66 BC). Entrance is protected by a pair of guardian eagle winged-bulls with the head of a bearded man. Above each sculptured figure is engraved a cuneiform inscription in 3 version: old persian, Elamite, and Neo Babylonian. 'By the grace of Ahuramazda I built this'Gate of ALL-Lands'. Much other good (construction) was built in this (city) PARSA (Persepolis), which I built and which my father built. Whatever good construction is seen, all ny the favor of Ahuramazda we built.' #gateofalllands #gateofallnations #persepolis #persianempire #persia #iran #wheniniran #wheninshiraz

As the center of the Achaemenid empire, Persepolis was an important ceremonial capital and a testament to the glory period of the empire. Guests receptions and festival celebrations were held there. The famous Macedonian King, Alexander the Great, began his invasion and subsequently defeated them after looting and destroying the city by fire in 330 BC. Now there's only ruins left with some high-rise column, statues, and reliefs. #persepolis #persianempire #achaemenid empire #wheniniran #wheninshiraz

Naqsh-e Rushtam, or Necropolis, is the royal tomb of the Achaemenid Empire who ruled Persia for over 200 years. You miss a huge chunk of Iranian history if you don't pass to this place. 4 tombs for Achaemenid kings are engraved on the façade of a mountain. One tomb is identified as the tomb of Darius the Great while other three tombs are believed belong to Darius's son, Xerxes, his son Artaxerxes I, and his Grandson Darius II. Archaeologists believe that the tombs were looted as soon as Alexander the Great conquer the empire. There are several reliefs carved into the stone but the original ones are heavily damaged (of course... The oldest one dating back to around 1.000 BC!!!). The majesty scale of the site can not be captured in pictures, means that you can't really appreciate until you are there in person! #wheniniran #wheninshiraz #necropolis #persian #persianempire #ancientburial

It is also their [Persians] general practice to deliberate upon affairs of weight when they are drunk; and then on the morrow, when they are sober, the decision to which they came the night before is put before them by the master of the house in which it was made; and if it is then approved of, they act on it; if not, they set it aside. Sometimes, however, they are sober at their first deliberation, but in this case they always reconsider the matter under the influence of wine." Herodotus, The Histories, 1.133 This seems eminently sensible to me. #lovehistory
Persepolis ( Takht E Jamshid) was the ceremonial capial of the Achaemenid Empire that was built about 60 km north of shiraz, more than 2500 years ago. It has an unbelievable structure.
