The Gate of All Nations

The Gate of all Nations, referring to subjects of the empire, consisted of a grand hall that was a square of approximately 25 meters (82 feet) in length, with four columns and its entrance on the Western Wall. There were two more doors, one to the south which opened to the Apadana yard and the other opened onto a long road to the east. Pivoting devices found on the inner corners of all the doors indicate that they were two-leafed doors, probably made of wood and covered with sheets of ornate metal.

A pair of Lamassu's, bulls with the head of a bearded man, stand at the western threshold. Another pair, with wings and a Persian head (Gopät-Shäh), stand at the eastern entrance, to reflect the Empire’s power.

Xerxes' name was written in three languages and carved on the entrances, informing everyone that he ordered it to be built.

دوست من! سپاس از این پست زیبایت! ولی بهتر است بدانی که تاریخ ایران 7 هزار ساله است و بر اساس حفاری های منطقه جیرفت تمدنی قدیمی تر از میان رودان - بین النهرین - دارد ... توصیه می کنم زیر نویس ات را تصحیح کنی
