Similar to it’s neighbour Naqsh-e Rustam, Naqsh-e Rajab contains a large number of Sassanid rock-cut reliefs. Interstingly, this site does not contain any Achaemenid tombs like those found at Naqsh-e Rajab. The reliefs at the site portray important aspects of Sassanid history and myth, including the investiture of Ardeshir I through a depiction of Shapur’s Parade, which celebrates the king’s victory over the Romans and Philip the Arab in 244 CE.

Naqsh-e Rustam, in conjunction with Naqsh-e Rustam is a candidate for UNESCO World Heritage status.
