Located 10 kilometer southeast of Shiraz, Barm e Delak is a site facing a pond, containing two Sasanian rock reliefs each carved at 6.5 M above the ground.

The larger relief is 1.8 to 2.1 m (height) by 2.6 m and it depicts two figures, one male and the other female with the male figure offering a flower to the female. It also has a Pahlavi inscription under the male figure’s arms that is badly damaged.

There has been much debate about who the two figures are or what the overall purpose of the relief is. Many, including Richard Fry, identify the male figure as Wahram II, although the figure is not crowned.

The smaller relief covers two panels, the one on the left being 2.75 (height) by 1.25 m and the one on the right, 2.08 by 1.25 m. This relief depicts two people, king Wahram II who is easily identified because of his crown, and another figure which has been identified as the high priest Kerdir by some of the scholars.
