Takiyeh Mo'aven-ol Molk

KermanShah owes its name, the Town of the King of Kerman, to the fact that it was founded in 390 A.D. by Bahram IV; who had been governor of Kerman before he ascended the Sassanian throne. It possesses a noticeable building (1898), the tomb and Takiyeh of Mo'aven-ol Molk, a Qajar complex standing in the middle of the town near a stream. The interior is a riot of tile-work, especially noteworthy being pictures of Mo'aven-ol Molk preaching (in the entrance court), of animals and mystical emblems (in the Takiyeh court) and in the dome chamber a fine series of portraits of Kings throughout the ages and are presentation of scenes from the life of the Prophet in nineteenth-century garb, with decapitated enemies piled in horizontal rows.

Taqe Bostan Grottoes

Taqe Bostan grottoes, a few miles west of KermanShah, celebrate the revival of rock-sculpture. These carvings are of special interest. With one exception they are the only Sassanian rock carvings outside Fars. Unlike nearly all other Sassanian sculptures they do not date from a short period of seventy years in the third century. In subject and treatment, moreover, the two principal reliefs at Taqe Bostan are utterly different from anything else in Iran. In the left of a great mountain is a little garden watered from a nearby spring at the entrance to the two grottoes stands a bas –relief representing the investiture of Ardeshir II (379-83A.D.), who is flanked by Ahura Mazda and Mithra. In the small grotto, an oblong room with simple barrel-shaped roof, are carvings of Shapur II and III, dating from the reign of the latter (383 -88). But it is the large grotto which is of outstanding interest. Its sculptures are of much more recent date (610-26).The carved facade, with its Nikes floating above cornucopia and bearing a garland of ribbons, its pilasters decorated with trees of life bursting into intricate bouquets of flowers, has no Sassanian parallel. On the end wall within the grotto there are two scenes, one above the other; the upper shows the investiture of Khosrow II and the lower portrays the same monarch on his horse, Shabdiz. It is not these, however, but the sidewalls which command attention. For here are the famous hunting panels, with their intricate design and vivid portrayal of animals. To the left there is a boar-hunt in a swamp; to the right, a stag-hunt in a forest. A wealth of little scenes and incidents charms the eye: the elephants struggling in the swamp or carrying away the spoils; stags and riders in combat; whole ranks of boars realistically portrayed; strings of camels leading off dead stags; boatloads of women clapping their hands; a poor girl holding a parasol over a king.
