If you ask me what is the most glorious dynasty in Persian history I would say it is the Sassanids. They came to power in the third century after overtaking the Parthians. The reason for their glory is that they revived the Persian culture of Achemenids after the Hellenized Parthians. They made Zoroastrianism the official religion once again, their educational and economic reforms were also unprecedented. And they are also known for their smart war strategies that led to taking back of most of the lands that once belonged to the Persian Empire but they had lost it to Alexander and later Romans. During their reign they had so many wars with the Romans since Persia and Rome were the two superpowers of the world. They were victorious in most of these wars and Shapour the first is the most known king for his victories against the Romans. He was the second Sassanid king who built this city to show his glory. The city is named Bishapour after him. You can find his statue in a cave. Here you can also find bas-reliefs that tell you a lot about the history of this Empire. The temple of Anahita, the goddess of water, is a Zoroastrian jewel in
This rather neglected and forgotten city.
There is also a garden of poppies in the whereabouts of this city. That explains why we called this day Historical-Natural. You need to walk a lot and do some trekking and hiking to see around the whole city and to get the most out of it. So a whole day will be dedicated to this amazing city.
