Geological studies are underway for the first time at Persepolis, near Shiraz, to determine the physical, chemical, and mechanical characteristics of its rocks and to evaluate the influence of various factors on such elements.

According to head of the Parse and Pasargade Research Foundation Mohamad-Hassan Talebian, the geological studies play an important role in studying the stability of historical sites from geo-Archaeological point of view.

The project includes various scientific studies and pursues various objectives, such as the identification of the characteristics of the rocks of Persepolis and the analysis of the influence of factors like water and earthquake on the complex.

The project of geological studies in the historical site of Persepolis is part of a five-year plan by Parse and Pasargade Foundation to study the area in collaboration with various scientific centers inside and outside the country.
