Description

Persepolis is considered to be the most important tourist attraction in Iran and the primary destination for most cultural tourists. Its construction was started in 518 B.C. by Darius I and was developed and expanded by his successors for around 140 years; but at the end it was destroyed in a fire after Alexander the Great defeated Achaemenids. Over the years, due to closure of its sewerage, most of its lower levels got covered by mud, leading to unintentional preservation. There is a museum in the complex for artifacts found in Persepolis, among them are inscriptions about the salaries and payments which shows that the town was not built using slaves.
