You know how some places just WOW you? That’s what’s happening to me right now, at Persepolis in Iran.
Persepolis is the name of the former capital of the Achaemenid (Persian) Empire. Archaeologists and historians believe that this city began being built in 518 BC – or 2,530 years ago.
Today, as you wander around Persepolis, you can see incredible stone columns and walls with extremely detailed inscriptions, giving us insight for how these humans used to live their lives. The most impressive thing to me is that nothing in Persepolis is restored — it’s all in its original form. I cannot imagine how much more polished Persepolis looked back in its heyday!
After spending all day exploring Persepolis and being so stunned that my jaw is dropped to the ground, I cannot understand why it’s not considered in any of the ‘7 wonder of the world’ lists. I have been to all 7 wonders on each list, and Persepolis would easily be in my top 3!!!!
Have you ever heard of Persepolis? Are you as fascinated as I am by this place?
