LONDON, (CAIS) -- Some sections of Cyrus the Greats’ palace known as Charkhab (čarxāb) located in the Borazjan Plain, in the Persian Gulf’s Bushehr Province has been completely destroyed and the remaining of the edifice is on the verge of total destruction if no action is taken soon, reported the Persian service of CHN.

According to the report, two years ago archaeologists left the site for no apparent reason and the unique early Achaemenid edifice has been left to be destroyed. The director of the team has continuously requested the recommence of some archaeological research but this has been rejected and permit denied.

Would be interested to know why archaeologists abandoned this site a couple of years ago, I believe if it can be preserved it should.

Usually it is profitable for countries to conserve their historical digs. It makes for great tourism. However, the photo doesn't look interesting, so maybe the area can be better used for development.

Ancient historical sites should be preserved for coming generations.

It's too bad war and greed for the present get in the way.

Good point, seems that is how it is everywhere, nothing is important any longer unless it's the bottom line.
