Tagh - e - Bostan
Only nine kilometers from Kermanshah city, there is Tagh - e - Bostan village with signs left in it from the
Sassanid period (266 - 651 AD).
One such sign is the coronation of the Sassanid kings which has been demonstrated on the rocks. On the left
side of the reception of Artaxerxes the second's coronation, there exist two vaults, a smaller one and a bigger
one which belong to the Sassanids. The first vault which is the small one has been carved in the mountain
during the reign of Shapur and includes two relief sculptures and two inscriptions in the Sassanid Pahlavi.
According to the inscriptions the two pictures belong to Shapur the second. The smaller vault is of greater
significance since the two inspcriptions have remained intact from events and act as introductions to the
demonstrations of the vault.
The bigger vault which contains more demonstrations and delicate carvings, has attracted the attention of
historians. The mouth of the bigger vault is 7.4 meters, it is 7.17 meters deep and 9 meters high. This bigger
vault belongs to the era of Khosrow the second known as Parviz.
