Where does the name “Apadana” Come from?

As a word, “apadāna” used to designate a hypostyle hall, i.e., a palace or audience hall of stone construction with columns. Hypostyle hall, in architecture, is an interior space whose roof rests on pillars or columns. The word means literally “under pillars”. The Old Persian term, “APADANA” standing for “unprotected”, refers to the fact that the roofed- shaped structure is open to the outside elements on one of its four sides, and thus ‘unprotected’ / exposed to the natural elements. This is exactly what the Apadana palace has: open (columned) porch on three sides—a unique feature among all palace buildings at Persepolis. The Apadana or Audience Hall of Persepolis belongs to the oldest building phase of the palace complex, the grand design by its founder, king Darius I the Great (522-486). In this large hall, the great king received the tributes from all the subjects in the Achaemenid Empire and gave presents in return. The Hall, the largest and probably most beautiful of the buildings at Persepolis, could accommodate hundreds of people. The seventy-two columns which supported the roof were twenty-five meters high. Today, only thirteen columns are standing. The Apadana of Persepolis is one of the magnificent places to visit in Iran.

  • I always buy my tickets through Apadana Travel, they are very professional and high customer service. Its always nice to talk with a travel agent and tell you all the information you need, if it multiple destinations or side trips or changes in dates. They always give me the same or better price than online. Highly recommend 🙂

  • I really like the customer service from this company. I bought my third ticket from them last month and I had very good experience as always. My flight was cancelled on the flight day due to Lufthansa strike and unluckily it was an official holiday; I was feeling very stressful, however when I left a message for Apadana they got back to me within an hour and rerouted my flight as soon as possible. Two years ago, I had a similar experience in London and they really helped me to solve the problem. The employees are very friendly and know how to treat the customers. I recommend this company for their excellent customer service.
