This is a monument from the Sassanide period and is located 20 km. northwest of the ruined city of Shoosh. It is known as 'Kut Karkheh' or Ivan-e-Kharkheh palace. A colossal rampart encloses the palace, and on each side there are entrances at regular intervals. To the east of the area, there is a ruined structure out of which only an arched ceiling made of brick has been remained. Previousely it was supposed to be a spectacular glorious hall used for formal ceremonies of the court of Sassanide monarchs.
