National Museum of Iran


The National Museum of Iran is one of the oldest museums dedicated to ancient culture. This modest museum represents Iran’s rich history. The interior includes a collection of ceramics, potteries, stone figures and carvings, mostly taken from excavations at Persepolis in Fars province, Khuzestan province, Tehran province and Golestan province. There are quite a few art craft from the site of Persepolis. As you see in this photo, the ancient objects from Persepolis include a magnificent human-headed capital. It is great to view these treasure before you actually visit that wonderful site.

Persepolis: Capital City of the Persian Empire


With so many beautiful and historical sites to see in Iran, it can be hard to choose which attraction is a must.  With living-history, the birthplaces of some of the most important Persian poets, and the home of Achaemenid Empire, Shiraz is home to a wealth of historic sites and tombs.


It was built on an immense half-artificial, half-natural terrace, where the king of kings created an impressive palace complex inspired by Mesopotamian models. The importance and quality of the monumental ruins make it a unique archaeological site.

When you go to Shiraz, it is extremely hard to miss the Persepolis. The strange structures, thought to have been built somewhere around 518 BC, is enough to make you question how advanced our early ancestors once were. Founded by Darius I, Persepolis was the capital of the Achaemenid Empire. It was built on an immense half-artificial, half-natural terrace, where the king of kings created an impressive palace complex inspired by Mesopotamian models. The importance and quality of the monumental ruins make it a unique archaeological site. In 1979 the ruins were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Want to know more about this masterwork?
