Persepolis

Persepolis was built during the Achamenis Empire (550-330 BC) and even though its now in ruins you can still get a feel for how grand the city must have been. The city was lost for centuries, covered by dust and sand and only following extensive excavations in the 1930s did skill and vision of its creators come to light once again.
