  • If you go to Persepolis, this must necessarily look, the more Nakshe-Rustam is a short distance-about 7-kilometers. Nakshe-Rustam is long Crag, which houses the tombs of the Kings of the dynasty Akhamenid dynasty and bas-reliefs, the age most oldest of which dates back to the year 1000 b.c. According to research scientists, were buried in the tombs of Darius I, Xerxes I, Artaxerxes I and Darius II. Looks all very grandly, especially after the ruins of Petrópolis! Nearby, so-called Cube of Zoroaster, the purpose of which is the differing interpretations, which better tell guide think visit Nakshe-Rustam doesn't leave anyone indifferent and will be interesting!

  • Even seeing these carvings and how they did it back then is attractive, particularly when you know these mountains have embraced some of the most important kings of the Iranian history.
  • For Iranian, Cyrus the Great is the symbol of pure and rich history of Iran. He was one of the greatest kings ever in history of mankind, and he's also the precursors of human rights. It's amazing and unbelievable how Cyrus's tomb was built to remain for eternity. It's architecture is fabulous and beautiful. Pasargad is a must see place for those who visit Shiraz.
  • A holy and religious place for iranian people, there are 4 tombs of achaemenad, reliefs for sassanian and a relief from before arians eliminate, so glorious
  • Very beautifull. I believe all people around the wprld should see this place.
  • Also named as Necropolis, you will see 3 gigantic tombs built inside the rock. It's definitely impressive! You don't have to pay the expensive tourist entrance (200k IRR) you can see the moment from outside!
