Categories: Ruins, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 60+ 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.

  • Here's Royal Tombs of the Achaemenid era rock to the cross-cut tomb of Artaxerxes II of Persia's Persepolis, built four relief ACE mess Persian dynasty Royal tombs and the Sassanid Persian period ruins, first of all noticeable. Xerxes, Darius I of Persia, Artaxerxes I and Darius II and handed down from the right way, but right-to-second except that of Darius the great and clearly is not yet known seems to be. Admission is 200000 real if the tour is 15 minutes is sufficient.
