The best preserved ziqqurat in Iran
The great ziqqurat of Tschoga Zanbil, the local name of the temple tower, was built around 1390 BC. Built by the Elamite king Untash Napirisha. The temple tower, the only structure of its kind in Iran, was dedicated to the god Inshushinak. On one side of the ziqqurat there are 11 temples for other deities.
Unlike the Ziqqurat in Iraq / Mesopotamia, the most famous Ziqqurat is in Babylon, Tschoga Zanbil was not built over a hill. The five-tier tower, which has a side length of about 100 m and a height of about 55 m, consists of rammed earth inside, the outer cladding consists of burnt mud bricks. On the top platform was the temple for the Elamite god Inshushinak.

A highlight of Mesopotamian culture
Taxi from Shushtar 15 euros. Our driver was considered a tour guide, an additional 10 euros. But it doesn't tell more than what is written in the Wickipedia. However, he will also take you to the outer city wall and show you a reed house (Musif), a kind of community house.

Before the Persians there was already a high culture empire
Dec. 2018 • Solo / single
I have to admit that I have heard next to nothing from Elam so far. Our history books largely ignore this ancient high culture. So tutoring in a formerly huge city with a double ringed temple area, a ziggurat, which some Iranians think is the real Tower of Babel. Not correct! - The mass of bricks with easily perceptible cuneiform imprints is impressive.
Obviously not everything has been excavated here, let alone "cleared up".

Impressive facility, I agree with the other reviewers without any reservations.

We were there in April, it wasn't that hot (about 30 degrees). I would recommend anyone who cannot take the heat very well to have a sun umbrella and plenty of water with them. We got out of our vehicle and the dusty heat hit us like a slap. I would have loved to have lingered longer with an umbrella

It's like there are a thousand bricks and behind a thousand bricks ...
What mysterious rituals did the Elamans like in the 2nd millennium BC? We ask ourselves at the step pyramid in the temple district of Choga-Sambil (UNESCO World Heritage). Bricks all over this plateau.
Our tour guide explains: Tschogha Zanbil (Persian چغا زنبيل / tʃoˌγɔː zæmˈbiːl /, ancient Dur-Untasch) is a Middle Elamite royal seat that was owned by King Untasch-Napirischa (Untasch-GAL) (1275 - 1240 BC), the son was founded by Humban-Numena. The city is located about 40 km southeast of Susa (Shush) in the Khuzestan province of today's Iran. Like other oriental rulers of around the same time, Untash-Napirisha also left the old capital of his country to found a new city. The city is perhaps based on the model of Dur-kurigalzu. Around 640 BC Dur-Untasch was conquered by the troops of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal. The city was, however, until about the end of the Elamite epoch in the 6th century BC. Settled.

The travel guide points out this building, when you are there you first realize what gigantic building was built there. Immediately questions arise - how was it possible to build such a step pyramid around 3,000 years ago. What the whole city might have looked like - today you can only see the remains of the city wall - originally 4 km long, the district covered 100 hectares. If you turn off the main road to this building, there is a water hole right next to the road - there are water buffalos !

Chogha in Bakhtiari means "hill". In 1979, Chogha Zanbil was named the first Iranian site to be on the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

hard to believe discovered 60 years ago given its size and height. Very impressive when built and is still impressive given its location in the middle of nowhere. You won't find hordes of tourists here!

Very interesting historical site in the middle of the desert
Very evocative beeswax ziggurat built in the middle of the desert, comes from the Elamite Kingdom. Definitely worth seeing if you are often advised to calm down or shustar. We hired a driver to take us from Shustar back with an hour wait for 600,000 IRR (probably cheap?). . . . . . . . . . The journey takes about 40 minutes. Admission is a predictable 200,000 IRR for foreign tourists, 30,000 for locals. Don't miss the Royal Tombs, which is east of the parking lot on a flat.

Incredibly historical place
We visited this hotel two times in one day! Once early in the morning and once again at night! It is better to have a local guide with you for explanations, but there are also tables and brochures directed they can use. Do not miss the hotel at night with its beautiful lighting!
