Susa

Susa is the capital of the Elaimites and later the winter capital of the Achaemenians Empire. This city is located in 120 kilometers, north of Ahwaz in Khuzestan Province. The city has been mentioned in the Old Testament as one of the busiest cities of the ancient world. The Ziggurat in Chogha Zanbil, is indeed one of the most fascinating remnants of the Elamites built to please Inshushinak, the patron God of the city of Susa.
