Persepolis 1979
The archaeological site of Tchogha (Choqa) Zanbil contains the ruins of the sacred city of the Elamites. Founded around 1250 BCE, the city is surrounded by three concentric walls but remained unfinished after it was attacked by Ashurbanipal. A huge 105m-sided brick ziggurat of the Elamite period, built by King Untash Gal, served as a temple dedicated to the god Inshushinak, until its destruction in 640BC. The well-preserved brickwork contains cuneiform (the world’s first alphabet) inscriptions. The site around the zuggurant contains evidence of the early qanat water channels that brought water from an incredible 45km away. It is located on the southwest of Iran, 80 km (50 mi) north of Ahvaz.
