Sarvestan Palace

The Sassanid Palace at Sarvestan (Persian: کاخ ساسانی سروستان‎ kakh-eh Sassani-ye Sarvestan) is a Sassanid-period working in the Iranian area of Sarvestan, somewhere in the range of 90 km southeast from the city of Shiraz. The royal residence was implicit the fifth century AD, and was either a gubernatorial living arrangement or a Zoroastrian fire sanctuary.

History

The Sarvestan Palace was worked by the Sasanian ruler Bahramgur (Persian: بهرام گور‎) (r. 420-438), and commands an enormous, purge plain. The name "castle" is somewhat deceptive, in light of the fact that the landmark's capacity is not so much caught on. It might in actuality have been a chasing lodge or even a haven. The issue is confounded by the way that there seems to have been a little building, quite recently north of the royal residence; its capacity is obscure.

Subsequent to entering the focal one, he would have achieved a huge square lobby under a huge arch, made of prepared block. After this, a guest would have wound up on a rectangular patio, encompassed by the private quarters. The building helps one to remember the Ghal'eh Dokhtar and the royal residence of Ardashir, both close Firuzabad; the distinction is that the Sarvestan royal residence is interested in all sides. The building, made of stone and mortar, more likely than not had fine adornments,
