"I've always loved this historic complex because it's a reminder of one of the great empires of Iran and is part of our historic identity," says Ganji.
"When you walk through the Gate of All Nations and enter Persepolis, it's best to think of just one thing: This is exactly where many kings and great emperors have set foot. It's an incredible connection to the past.
"As with Pasargadae, this took a lot of effort to photograph because it's hard to get permission to enter at night."
