One of the world's most stunning graveyeards: Necropolis, the City of the Dead, where tombs of 4 Ancient Persian Kings are carved out of the side of a rocky cliff. This tomb I am standing in front of is the tomb of Darius The Great: carved out almost 2,500 years ago.
This place took me by complete surprise and left me in awe, the views were just incredible! It doesn't actually look that big because of the angle we took the picture, but the tombs were immensely big and I felt so small next to them!
The detail on these facades and the carvings in the rock are pretty impressive and reminded me so much of Petra in Jordan, but luckily it was wayyy less busy and a fraction of the price to enter! Now is really the best time for foreigners to visit Iran as it is so cheap because of the economy!
I've been loving all the messages I've been getting from you guys, saying that my pictures are making you really want to visit Iran, it's been so touching and makes it all worthwhile to share my pictures with you!
