Nagsh-e Rostam, Persepolis

4.7
#7 of 15 in Historic Sites in Fars Province
Ruin Tourist Spot
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.

  • Tomb of Cyrus is wonderful. Has 2,500 years. Scary just thinking about. One lived so far away and so here today amongst us. We admire his grave, many people struggled over the millennia to leave a trace. He succeeded, perhaps did not strive not so. The time decided for him

  • 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.
  • Unreal. I had no idea Iran had its own Petra! Incredible history in this area. An absolute MUST SEE!
  • Intetesting to see kings tombs not like kongdom vally in Egipt. It is not possible to go inside...
