It is difficult to carve on the rocks at this height. I have no idea how they did it. History and Art came together and built a masterpiece. All human beings die but their art will remain. more »

Entrée 200 000 IRR. Faisons la visite un jour férié : résultat énormément d’iraniens sur le site. D’autre part le ciel bleu de la veille a fait place à un ciel très nuageux et un temps lourd. Tant pis... more »Entry 200 000 IRR. Do visit one day holiday: result a lot of Iranians on the site. On the other hand the blue sky the day before gave way to a very cloudy sky and a muggy weather. Too bad. The cliff carved appears before being on the site. 4 beautiful fall rock cross. Those of Darius1 (), Xerxes (1), Artaxerxes and Darius II. There are splendid low reliefs (with explanations in English, very detailed) without forgetting the cube of Zoroaster in excellent condition. Really a nice visit. Fact 4/25/2017

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.
