Naqsh-e
Rustam
is the Acropolis of the great Persian kings of the 5th and 4th century BCE with the high tombs of Darius II, Ataxerxes I and Xerxes I. The site is near the ruined city of Persepolis, not far from Shiraz in western Iran. In the foreground is the mysterious Ka’be-ye Zartosht which has been thought to be either a tomb, a sacred library or possibly a chamber for the keeping of
holy fire
.
