The so-called Gate of All Nations served as the main, ceremonial entrance into the royal palace complex of Persepolis in the heart of ancient Persia. The vast mud brick structure all but vanished except its stone components which are the four columns inside that supported the roof, the human headed lamassus flanking the gate facing the interior of the complex and the divine bulls flanking the gate facing out towards those who enter. This reconstruction is based on photos taken at the site. The Persian royal guards are referenced from depictions found on glazed bricks at Susa in the royal palace.
