Necropolis or Naqsh-e-Rostam is another ancient site, 12 kms from Persepolis. It is the site where 5 tombs of kings were carved into the side of the mountain. The tombs belonged to the Achaemenian Kings: Darius 1, 2, and 3, King Artaxerxes and King Xerxes. The tombs were looted following the conquest of the Archaemenian empire by Alexander the Great.
