Some may argue that Greek, Roman or Egyptian historical places are among the richest in the world.  But the Persians had a great empire and they left an abundance of impressive sites.  One such site is the palace complex at Persepolis.  Persepolis was the ancient capital of the Achaemenid Dynasty.  The palace complex was started by Darius 1 (the Great), one of the most powerful Persian leaders, around 518 B.C.  It was built at the foot of Kuh-i-Rahmat and took about a century to complete. It stands as a monument to the splendor of the Persian empire.

Persia does have some rich archeological history and architctual marvels. However, I don't think it is the richest. Your question asks if it has SOME of the richest cultural places. I do agree that it has a rich history, and that does not mean that it is THE richest.
