  • A place you must visit after Persepolis. This is the tomb of the kings who built Persepolis. This place is very near Persepolis and will not take you too much time to visit.
  • It's not the biggest place but I liked it. The stone carvings in this massiv walls telling the history of persi is cool to see. We stopped there on our way from Yazd to Shiraz before we visted Persepolis.
  • An impressive place. But the entrance for tourists is too high as in many touristic places in Iran.
  • Unreal. I had no idea Iran had its own Petra! Incredible history in this area. An absolute MUST SEE!
