The Sassanid Palace at Sarvestan (Persian: کاخ ساسانی سروستان‎ kakh-eh Sassani-ye Sarvestan) is a Sassanid-era building in the Iranian province of Sarvestan, some 90 km southeast from the city of Shiraz. The palace was built in the 5th century AD, and was either a gubernatorial residence or a Zoroastrian fire temple.

This is an example of a relief. This is found on the walls of palaces at Persepolis and it shows the realism during that time.
