NAGHSH-E ROSTAM

  You will see 4 tombs in the mountain of Darius I, Artaxerxes I, Xerxes I, and Darius II although historians debate about it.

Eight stone carvings from Sassanian dynasty below the achaemenian tombs showing conquests of kings; believed was created to celebrate the victory of Sassanian king, over the Romanian invader, Valerian.

Used to be a ladder which visitors could climb up to the tombs but is no longer available. The size of these are incredible!
