He told IRNA that cultural heritage experts will reconstruct various parts of Persepolis on computer based on archeological records.
Razmjou added that the reconstruction will not be imaginary and will be based solely on collection of documentary information.
The official said, "The research was categorized by the palaces, while accurate information and documents have already been collected for the computerized reconstruction of Persepolis and the palaces of Achaemenid dynasty will be reconstructed optionally.
"In some instances, in the computerized reconstruction process, further information on the project might be needed to make the reconstructed images look exactly like the original," he added.
He said that the reconstructed images look quite natural and reiterated that they are not at all similar to painting.
Razmjou said that the reconstruction of Achaemenid palaces is mainly aimed at contributing to archeological researches.
