In the eastern mountainous region of Ahvaz, there are some engraved crypts right in the heart of mountain, which was supposed to be the burial place for Zoroastrians of Ahvaz in the pre-Islamic era. The present appearance and condition of crypts reveals that these places probably used to be temples, and later on became a burial place or graveyard.
