||The rule of the Sassanid Empire of ancient Persia was characterized by considerable centralization, ambitious urban planning, agricultural development, and technological improvements. This program reveals the history of the Second Persian Empire, with a focus on the architecture of the royal palaces and religious temples of the period. The rise of the Sassanids through Ardeshir e Babakan, the important role of Zoroastrianism during the duration of the empire, and the reigns of Shapur I and Anushirvan are recounted. Throughout the program, special attention is given to the ancient ruins and bas-reliefs of the period, such as Ardeshir's palace and the city of Shapur.
