About the tour

Just next to Persepolis, there is a mountain with flat rocky texture known as the Necropolis (Naqsch-e Rostam). As you walk there, large crosses carved on rocky surface attracts your attention. 4 huge cross shape tombs, all with carvings and entrance to the burial chamber, belong to four kings of Persian empire. Although it is not possible to enter any of the tombs as they are very high and hard to reach, visiting this place is exciting.
