   Chogha Zanbil is an ancient temple from Ayami which was built in 1250 B.C. Choghazanbil is the remaining part of the city Dur Untash. Untash-Napirisha, the king of Ilam, constructed this temple to praise Inshushinak, the God who was thought to guard Susa.{j2storecart 59}

This place is 45 km of Susa (from south) near the ancient region called Haft Tappe (7 Hills). The temple used to be 52 m high with 5 floors, but now only 25 m and 2 and a half floor is left.
Chogha Zanbil, its ancient name, is a compound noun consisting of “Chogha” which means hill and “Zanbil” which means basket. The reason behind the name is that this temple was built on a hill which is like an upside down basket. This place is called “Dur Untash” among archeologists because of its king “Untash-Napirisha”.  In 1979, Chogha Zanbil became the first Iranian site to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
