The Gate Palace (Winged Human)

Covering an area of 726m,this palace occupied the southeastern section of pasargadae. Eight columns, each reaching a height of 16m, support the ceiling of its 586m main hall. The column bases are in the form of double stepped cubes of black stone. Due to heavy damage sustained,

they are now protected under straw and clay mortar. The very big size of these bases indicates the dimension of the Columns, of which unfortunately no traces are left.

This hall had two main entrances in the northwest and southeast and two side doors in the northeast and southwest side of it. Each portal measured 9m in height. only the supporting frame of the northeastern doors remains standing. It bears the image of a standing figure with Four wings deep in prayer bears an Egyptian crown consisting of two ram horns, three cones holding the sum and two corbras on each side.
