عنوان مقاله [English]
Persepolis is the name of one of the ancient cities of Iran that has been the glorious capital of the Achaemenid kingdom for many years. In this ancient city there is a palace called Persepolis, built during the reign of Darius the Great, Khashayarshah and Ardashir I and has been around for about 5 years. Persepolis, though still exposed to various natural and abnormal elements, experiences tangible and intangible erosion with all its components. It is one of the most important monuments in the world. The general background of Persepolis has been cited many times. But less is known about its degradation factors, this is a fundamental research that has been done through library and field studies based on laboratory methods such as (XRD, XRF, SEM). . The results show that there is no evidence of deliberate destruction, neither in Alexander's day nor after. The palaces were destroyed due to the weakness of the building and the large distance. These palaces were destroyed naturally and for practical reasons. At the same time, the grandeur of these palaces is likely to remain as monuments.
