Chogha Zanbil


One of the most significant 13th century BC architectural works of Iran is the Chogha Zanbil Temple (1250 BC) located 45 kilometres from Susa. The western vaults of Chogha Zanbil Temple were so skillfully built that at present, even after three thousand years, they remain in marvelously good conditions. The vaults are constructed on prolonged corridors and over internal staircases of the temple and represent an extraordinary achievement in the architecture of ancient Iran. This ziggurat is the best surviving example of the Elamite architecture anywhere.
Throughout the ancient Near East a tendecy exists to admire and worship mountians. Huge ziggurats relieved the flat monotony of the Mesopotamian plain, ritual imitations of the familiar sacred mountains that ring the Iranian Plateau. Thus, even if the impressive development of these colossal structures was Mesopotamian, their inspiration and meaning was clearly Persian. The men who came down from the eastern lands could not bring with them their mountains, so they made their own "holly hill" or "mountain of all lands".
Chogha Zanbil was built at Dur Untash, a city near Susa, by Untash-gal, king of Elam, about 1,250 BC, and in honor of Inshushinak, gauridan god of Susa, and reached the hight of its splendor in 1,200 BC, its downfall occuring in 640 BC. The ziggurats serve as both temples and tombs with splended tile work and inscriptions.

Hi,

What a fantastic and informative weblog. I am wondering if you can write about the name of IRAN. Where it came from? I know our "Vatan" was reffered to as Persia, is this the name we used to call our "vatan" too? or it was only refered to as persia by the other countries? Did we (iraninan) used to call our vatan Iran or Persia? For example what was the name of our vatan during let say Afshar or Zand Dynesty? Many thanks in advance.

Dear Friend,

Re: Persia or Iran

Before there was an established country named Iran, Arians migrated to the Iranian plateau. After their migration, the land was named Iran ( the land of Arians) after them. Persia is a termed used by the Greeks to refer to Iran and as far as the Western world is concern, Iran was always Persia. In 1935, Shah of Iran decided to re-establish the name of Iran , as oppose to a name with which foreigners called us. Hence, the name was change to Iran. Today some people like to call Iran, Persia, because for the Westerns, Persia is associated with the glories of the Persian Empire, while Iran is an unfamiliar name.
