Persepolis

Persepolis, literally meaning "city of Persians", was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550–330 BC). Persepolis is situated at the northeast of city of Shiraz in the Fars Province in Iran. The earliest remains of Persepolis date from around 515 BC. It exemplifies the Achaemenid style of architecture and is considered to be a significant milestone in humanity's civilizations. The two visitors, at the front, stare at the remains of what once represented an empire, crafted and built by hand.
