Naqsh-e Rostam is a collection of rock tombs of ancient Persian kings not far from Persepolis. The earliest tomb was probably built for Darius I. Later the cliffs over the arid valley were used by the Achaeminids and Sassanians. Apart from funerary chambers, there are the rests of the fire temple and reliefs in Naqsh-e Rostam. The reliefs were used as the singular chronicle of brilliant wins and royal ceremonies. Pictures sends the message of died kings about their important achievements, although the ancient Persians were literate and they had their own cuneiform.
