Author(s): Ghirshman, Roman
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Achaemenian;architecture;book scan
Description: Clearly a bagastana, "place of the gods" (Andre Godard, The Art of Iran, translated by Michael Heron, New York, F.A. Praeger, 1965, p. 142) so "there was nothing surprising about a Mazdean sanctuary being situated in the sacred spot, in full view of the enormous plain of Marwdashr."
