  • Breathtaking masterpiece from the Persian empire. Beautiful curving on the mountains, where is the temple of four kings from Achamemnan era. An absolutely must see for every history lover or who is keen to know where the first human civilizations come from.
  • Beautiful place. Historical significance. Giant carvings on the side of a wall. Keep a look out for the attashga. Come when the sun is about the set and the wind is blowing. It's a surreal feeling.
  • Incredible, one of the best sights of ancient Persia.
