Necropolis (Naqsh-e Rostam) Tour
Necropolis, or Naqsh-e Rostam as the site is known in Persian, is only a short distance away from the glorious Persepolis and is usually visited as part of the same one-day tour. This spectacular ancient site contains four tombs carved high up into the rock behind a cross-shaped entrance. Each tomb was originally meant to house the remains of an Achaemenid king.
Here at Naqsh-e Rostam you can also marvel at the splendid Kaba-ye Zartosht (Zoroaster’s shrine), Achaemenid tower built in the 5th century BCE.
