A couple from my native Iran... i live in America now but had the chance to visit Iran last summer and found some shockingly unique monuments and ancient sites... i just looked up some of these statues online... nothing too grand in size but some pretty old and historic stuff here...


1,800 years old, the statue of Emperor Shapur I in Sasan Village, Iran... the statue was recently restored as it was pulled down 1,400 years ago after Arabs invaded the area...

(cais)



The entrance to the Shapur Cave is pretty large:

(cais)



The remains of a statue of the former Shah of Iran in Tehran... the statue was taken down after the people revolted against the dictator...

(Payvand)


2,162 years old... the statue of Hercules at Bistoon Mountain along the silk road... Alexander the Great's passing army went through this passage... the statue was made in honor of Persian king Darius for friendship between ancient Persia and Greece:

The 2,500 year old remains of Persepolis which for years was the epicenter of the world... there are various statues all over this site:

(i took this pic)



Arash is a mythological Persian character... he was an archer whose arrow was shot to place the border of ancient Iran (Persian Empire)... the arrow was in the air for 3 days before it landed...

(i took this pic)
