Actually, it is Ctesiphon, the winter capital of the Persian Empire under the Parthians and later the Sassanid dynasties that ruled Iran. It was built around 600 AD. Among other things, the building itself ("Tagh-e Kasra") is well known for the huge arch structure, which was a major engineering accomplishment. It represents the largest single-span brick arch in the world. Ctesiphon is now located in what is known as Iraq. At the time it was built, the area was part of Iran.

big deal. look at the mud-built city in Mali a few pics ago, that's easily 500, 600 years old.
