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.
