Photographer's Note

Welcome to 2500 years ago. This is my first post of Parsa (Persepolis) or Takht-e Jamshid (Throne of Jamshid) as we iranians call it today, series. It was simply breathtaking for me even before I enter the site. This is a place that has been photographed so extensively by both amateur and professional photographers that you hardly can find someone who hasn't seen any picture of this place, and when you want to photograph it you should be a master to come up with an original shot. BTW this is my humble collection of how I saw Parsa.

The site is marked by a large terrace with its east side leaning on Kuh-e Rahmet ("the Mount of Grace"). The other three sides are formed by a retaining wall, varying in height with the slope of the ground from 5 to 13 meters on the west side a magnificent double stair, of very easy steps, which leads to the top. (more on easy steps on upcoming shots).

For more info please see this site: Persepolis on Wikipedia.
