Achaemenid architecture refers to the achievements of the Achaemenid Iranians in building spectacular cities (Persepolis, Susa, Hegmataneh), temples for worship, and social gatherings (such as Zoroastrian temples), and the tombs of past kings (such as the tomb of Cyrus the Great). One of the basic features of this architecture is its combination with Median, Assyrian, Greek, and Asian elements. The legacy of Achaemenid architecture began with the expansion of the empire around 550 BC. With the advent of the second Persian empire, the Sassanid Empire (224-624 AD), the Achaemenid traditions were revived by building fire temples and huge palaces.
Iranian Garden

Persian garden refers to its unique structure and design. The Persian Garden of Pasargadae is considered to be the root of the architecture of these gardens. Cyrus the Great had personally ordered how the garden of Pasargadae would be created and how the trees would be planted. In the Sassanid era, gardens were formed in front of palaces and temples, and this continued in the Islamic period. These gardens, as a complete structure, express the close relationship between the cultural and natural context and are a sign of adaptation and alignment of human and nature needs. In the past, the Persian garden was the manifestation of the latent power of the environment and the perception of its complexities. Relying on his experimental knowledge, the creator of the garden created a space that caused the survival and dynamism of the natural bed. In 1390 (2011) at the 35th session of UNESCO, a total of 9 Iranian gardens were recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These gardens include the Persian gardens of Pasargad, Eram, Chehelston, Finn, Abbasabad, Shazdeh, Dolatabad, Pahlavanpour, Akbariyeh.
