Naqshe Rustam

Nagash-e-Rostam is the necropolis of the ancient city of Persepolis and home to four giant rock-cut tombs in the shape of Greek crosses which were built to house the remains of Darius the Great and three of his successors. Below the tombs are a number of Sassanian rock-reliefs including one depicting the defeated Roman emperor Valerian kneeling before the victorious Shahpur I (reign 241 to 272 A.D).
