Old Nissa (Nusay)

Local nameKöne Nusaý
LocationAshgabat, Turkmenistan

Nisa was an ancient settlement of the Iranian peoples, located near Bagir village, 18 km southwest of Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Nisa is described by some as the first seat of central government of the Parthians. It is traditionally assumed to have been founded by Arsaces I and was reputedly the royal residence of the Parthian kings, although it has not been established that the fortress at Nisa was either a royal residence or a mausoleum.

In 2007, the fortress was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
