Ancient Pre-Islamic Architecture of IRAN

Via http://pesaretabrizi.livejournal.com/1418.html

Iran, sometimes known as Persia, is a country with a glorious history spanning thousands of years. Iran as a nation was established in 540 BC by Cyrus the Great, possibly making it the oldest nation today in existence, and even older than China which was established some 300 years later by Qin Shi Huang.

These are some examples of the great architecture that existed in Iran before the arrival of Islam. Some of these structures, whether they be cities, palaces, temples or monuments, are as old as 7000 years old.
