SHIRAZ PT.2

The next day we visited Persepolis, the 6th century BC city built by Darius that was razed by Alexander the Great.  It was amazing.  The level of art and scientific knowledge they had during the first Persian Empire was impressive.  Although Alexander destroyed much of Persepolis, enough remains to get a feel for the size and sophistication of the local society of that time.  After Persepolis we went to Pasargad, which was the city of Cyrus the Great of the first Persian Empire
