The capital of the First Persian Empire. One of the largest masonry structures in the world, even today. Give the credit of it's merciless demolition to our good friend and amiable guy called Alexander (The so-called Great)
Persepolis means "City of the Persians" in Greek. The ruins are near modern Shiraz, Iran

A fantastic graphic novel written by Marjane Satrapi based on her experiences growing up during and in the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Also made into an equally great animated film.
