Persepolis is a complex which includes different palaces and was built in 518 BC by Darius the Great, the mighty king of the Achaemenid Empire. The pad in which the complex was built is on Rahmat Mountain. The length of this historical site is equal to Acropolis in Athens but is four to five times wider. Many architects from different civilizations along with male and female workers have contributed to the construction of this Palace. Some of the different sections of this site are the Gate of All Nations, Apadana Palace, Throne Hall, Palace of Xerxes (who attacked and destroyed Athens) and etc. This place eventually was burnt in Alexander the Great’s wrath.
