used by visitors to Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) historical site have been

visiting the monuments of Persepolis, said Persian Service of CHN.

the project have been signed, but, its implementation needs financial support
which has not yet been provided.

in view of its prestigious monuments and museum.

established in Persepolis this year and tourist pamphlets have been printed.

each year during the month of June, but, the cultural heritage and tourism

routes that tourists will take while visiting the site.
