  • 多幅巨幅的壁畫,述說著波斯的故事 建議造訪前先做功課,不然會像(我聽到的)某些遊客一樣感到失望 門票稍貴,但值得前往 
  • Disebut juga dengan Necropolis. Lokasinya dekat dengan Persepolis. Makam-makam yang dipahat di sini sayangnya tidak dapat dimasuki. Terdapat relief di sekitarnya 
  • There are 13 reliefs, especially from the time of the Achameniden. They are all gorgeous. These are the best down to admire, bring binoculars or telephoto lens to the upper reliefs in detail. Don't be fobbed off by a taxi driver to the reliefs on the outside of the domain free to view, you can see at the most 2, without good explanation. The explanation can be found in a good travel guide or on the signs at the reliefs. Definitely recommended

  • Ideally you need around 1 to 1.5 hour to explore Naqsh Rostam.... better to avoild mid day as the sun is very strong. There are 4 tombs at the mid level of the rock and not allowed to enter. There are wonderful rock mural at the low level of the rock face. The entrance is 100000 Rial (around US$3).
  • Not as interesting as Persoplois but definitely worth the visit
  • 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.
  • Achaemenid great kings tombs from Darius to Artaxerxes
  • Beautiful carving like petra in Jordan
