The Garden Landscape Guide

Naghshe Rostam - Naqsh-e Rustam

On a cliff overlooking a plain encircled by mountains there are reliefs belong to Elamite, Achaemenian the Sassanid periods. The tombs of Xerxes, Darius the second, and Arta-xerxes are here. There is also a Zoroastrian fire temple. One cannot doubt the keen landscape sensibility of the people who chose this site.  In Persian, the name is نقش رستم Nāqš-e Rostām.

    First I was in doubt this place makes any sense with gardens but then "In front of the tombs is a small tower, which is known as the Ka'bah-i Zardusht...Probably, this tower was used to keep the holy fire or books...There was a garden near the tombs and tower." Who would have thought that... You can read that at livius' (
