This Tower like construction in Naqsh-e-Rostam Iran, is known as Kabaye Zartosht, meaning the “Cube of Zoroaster”. It dates from the 5th Century B.C.E, and is one of the best surviving examples of the Achaemenid architectural design. It is unclear which was the purpose of this building, although it is believed that it might have been a royal tomb.
