(Persia Digest) – Susa historic site is a must see tourism attraction in Khuzestan Province, southern Iran, and a reminder of Iran’s antiquity.
This historic site was registered globally in Bonn, Germany, in July 2015.
It consists of the Shapur Palace, Apadana Palace, the Eastern Gate, Hadish Palace, Fifteenth City, an Achaemenid village, Susa Grand Mosque, a collection of monuments from the Islamic period, the Acropolis mound, and the French fort.
The ancient city of Susa was a meeting point of the two great civilizations of Mesopotamia and Elam, each deeply impacting the other.
Its location at the top of the Persian Gulf close to Mesopotamia played a significant part in its development.
