Nagsh-e Rostam, Persepolis
(4.6/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Stand in awe at the tombs of four ancient kings of Persia, carved into the side of a mountain, at Nagsh-e Rostam. Walk around the remains of one of the oldest cities in the area, discovered in 1930 by a group of archaeologists, and admire the burial site. The only thing more impressive than the tombs themselves are the reliefs that decorate the surroundings; the oldest allegedly dates back to the beginning of the second millenium BCE. Look carefully, and you'll see carvings of faces in the mountain, still visible after all this time. Using our world travel planner, Persepolis attractions like Nagsh-e Rostam can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
