"Shapur's Parade" at Naqsh E Rostam (Iran) Naqsh-e Rajab is an archaeological site just east of Istakhr and about 12 km north of Persepolis. Together with Naqsh-e Rustam, which lies less than a kilometer away, the site is part of the Marvdasht cultural complex. Naqsh-e Rajab is the site of four limestone rockface inscriptions and bas-reliefs that date to the early Sassanid era.

Choqa Zanbil (Iran). 'Even if you don’t like ancient ruins, the great bulk, semi-desert isolation and fascinating back story make the Choqa Zanbil ziggurat one of the most impressive historical sites in a region full of them. Built by the Elamites in the 13th century BC, it was ‘lost’ under the sands in the 7th century BC and only rediscovered during a 1935 aerial survey by a British oil company.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/iran/sights/monument/choqa-zanbil
