Taq Kasra

Tāq Kasrā, (Persian: ایوان خسرو‎, romanized: ʼiwan-i-husraw or Arabic: طاق كسرى‎, romanized: ṭāq kisrā, also transcribed as Taq-i Kisra, Taq-e Kesra (Persian: طاق کسری‎) and Iwan-e Kasrā (Persian: ایوانِ خسرو‎), meaning Iwan of Chosroes, are names given to the remains of a circa 3rd–6th-century Sasanian-era Persian monument, which is sometimes called the Arch of Ctesiphon. It is located near the modern town of Salman Pak, Iraq. It is the only visible remaining structure of the ancient city of Ctesiphon. The archway is considered a landmark in the history of architecture, and is the largest single-span vault of unreinforced brickwork in the world.
