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.
