Pasargadae and Naqsh-e Rostam

Naqsh-e Rostam is the site where the tombs of four Achaemenid kings were sculpted into the rocks.

Beneath the tombs are some bas-reliefs. These are from a later era and depict some of the Sassanid kings. The Sassanid dynasty reigned 226-652.

Close to this place is Pasargadae where the tomb and remainders of the palace of Cyrus II (590-530 BC), the founder of the Persian Empire under the Achaemenid dynasty, can be visited.


In Naqsh-e Rostam zijn de graven van vier Achaemenidische koningen in de rotsen uitgehouwen. Onder deze graven is een aantal bas-reliefs te zien uit een latere periode onder de Sassanidische dynastie.(226-652)

Niet ver daar vandaan is Pasargadae waar de tombe en de restanten van het paleis van Cyrus II (590-530 vC), de stichter van het Oud- Perzische Rijk onder de Achaemenidische dynastie, bezocht kunnen worden.
