Chogha Zanbil, Greatest Contribution in the Ancient World

A view of the Ziggurat at Chogha Zanbil in south-western Iran.
This structure was built in 1250 BC by the Elamite ruler Untash-Gal as a dedication to the diety Inshushinak 'Lord of Shush (Susa)'.
Chogha Zanbil is an ancient Elamite complex in the Khuzestan province of Iran.
It is one of the only extant ziggurats outside of Mesopotamia (the other is Sialk). It lies approximately 45 kilometres south of Susa and 230 kilometres north of Abadan by way of Ahvaz, which is 60 kilometres away.
