Ctesipho 01

Located on the eastern bank of the Tigris, and about 35 kilometers southeast of present day Bagdad, Ctesiphon was an ancient city of Iraq. In about 58 BC, during the Parthian Empire, it became the capital of Persia and remained the capital of the Sasnian Empire until the Muslim conquest of Persia in 651 AD.
