Ancient Pre-Islamic Architecture of IRAN
pesaretabrizi
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.

Thats Awesome!

there is only one thing, you have mentions that "Iran as a nation was established in 540 BC by Cyrus the Great, possibly making it the oldest nation today in existence", well what i know is that A unified kingdom was founded in Egypt 3150 BC by King Menes, which makes it the Oldest Nation today in Existence!

Thanks!
