Description of Persepolis
Ruins of the former palace of Persepolis are still
impressive despite years of negligence and abandonment. The palace
construction started in 515 BC by Cyrus the Great who started a
Persian Empire. Persepolis was the heart of the empire. However all
was laid to rest in 330 BC by Alexander the Great. Famous Greek
leader stormed the armies of king Darius III wiping them out in a
series of battles. Greek soldiers finally captured the capital of
the Persian Empire and started probably World's greatest party.
Alexander the Great seeing debauchery and lack of discipline decided
to torch the king's palace with all of its riches. The historians
claim that this was the revenge for burning of Athens by Persian
king Xerxes just a century before that.
