Persepolis dating

The great city of Persepolis was built in terraces up from the river Pulwar to rise on a larger terrace of over 125,000 square feet, partly cut out of the Mountain Kuh-e Rahmet ("the Mountain of Mercy").

Though building began under Darius, the glory of Parsa which Alexander found when he invaded was due mainly to the latter works of Xerxes I and Artaxerxes III, both of whose names have been found (besides that of Darius) inscribed on tablets, over doorways and in hallways throughout the ruins of the city.Around 515 BCE, construction of a broad stairway was begun up to the palace doors.This grand, dual entrance to the palace, known as the Persepolitan stairway, was a masterpiece of symmetry on the western side of the building and the steps were so wide that Persian royalty and those of noble birth could ascend or descend the stairs by horseback, thereby not having to touch the ground with their feet.Persepolis is without a doubt one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the ancient world.The Persian palace complex still strikes awe into every visitor who sees its vast size and the great beauty of the monuments for the first time.

is about European travellers, photographers, and archaeologists who visited the ruins of Persepolis in centuries past.

The magnificent ruins of Persepolis lie at the foot of Kouh-e Rahmat, or "Mountain of Mercy," in the plain of Marv Dasht about 850 kilometers south of the present capital city of Tehran and about 50 kilometers north of Shiraz. The exact date of the founding of Persepolis is not known.
