Naqsh-e Rajab or Naqsh-e Quahramanan is a place situated in the opposite side of the valley of Naqsh-e Rostam. For some time it was famous thanks to a small teahouse that was opened in the road from Shiraz to Esfahan by enterprising man Rajab. Nowadays, there is no any sign of that teahouse, but people come here to see stone reliefs of the 3rd century AD.

photopoet Stunning bone dry images—reflect the heat— and the history. I love the purple flower against the dry background. Your photos from Iran are wonderful—especially for those of us who aren't traveling to Iran.
