Continuing the road to Kermanshah would take the traveler to another ancient site known as Taq-e-Bostan. In this area several Taqs (arches) were carved with detailed inscription commemorating a major event of the era. The largest and latest Taq was carved celebrating the coronation of Khosro-II Parviz, also know as Khosro-Parviz. In upper section of the Taq, Khosro's image is carved receiving his crown from Mobed-e-Mobedan (highest priest of his time) under the protection of guardian angel of waters -- Anahita.
