in one of the most fertile and pleasantly situated districts
of the Persian province of Fars, the Persepolis platform measured
1458 feet x 929 feet and was between 33 and 39 feet high. Excavation
has showed four distinct phases of construction over time.
Mythology says that both the Baalbek and Persepolis structures
were built on the instructions of Jinn bin (son of) Jann as
lurking places for the Genii to hide.
