  • 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
