Persepolis (Old Persian: 'Parsa', New Persian: تخت جمشید, 'Takht-e Jamshid') was an ancient ceremonial capital of the second Iranian dynasty, the Achaemenid Empire, situated some 70 km northeast of modern city of Shiraz, not far from where the small river Pulwar flows into the Kur (Kyrus). To the ancient Persians, the city was known as Parsa, meaning the city of Persians, Persepolis being the Greek interpretation of the name meaning Persian meaning city. In contemporary Iran the site is known as Takht-e Jamshid (Throne of Jamshid).
The largest and most complex building in Persepolis was the audience hall or Apadana with 36 columns, accessible by two monumental stairs. services visa bam citadel bistoon cip vip. Perspolise trekking tour travel in iran. persepolise cultural historical palace in Iran.
