Hegmataneh

.

Hegmataneh is part of the Tentative list of Iran in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Hegmataneh or Ecbatana comprises the ruins of the capital of the Medes. Later it became the (summer) capital of Achaemenids and Parthians as well. Excavations so far have been limited, but have revealed a massive defensive wall made of mud-bricks and a checkerboard urban plan.
