Beside the unique architecture of this ancient city of 2500 years ago, the respect to the human rights at that time is considered as a brilliant characteristic of Persepolis:

In constructing Persepolis, there was NO SLAVERY. According to the numerous tablets that have been found in Persepolis, every people had their own salaries.

2500 years ago, female workers of this city have the right of maternity leave, in time of their pregnancy.

There was a day care center for female workers to put their little children there and go to work.


There is no captive or slave in 3000 bas-relief figures of Persepolis. In showing 23 different nations in bas-reliefs of Persepolis, every nation is treated equally. You can see nobody on horseback, every people are walking in the same position. There is NO show of people walking in shame or failure for example with their faces downwards.   

In entrance of Persepolis there is a gate which was called: the Gates of all Nations. It means people of all countries and nationalities were welcomed in entering the city which was the center of the huge Persian Empire.

And now, from each country that you come from, you are warmly welcomed walking in this ancient city and visiting the area of its stone terrace (530 m by 330 m), half natural, half artificial with different palaces, huge columns and tombs of the kings inside the mountain.
