  • This is a scandal, to be so mediocre attraction claimed 150.000 IRR. Do not know what a miracle this tomb has such a high rating. In the middle of nothing. I repeat: in the middle is not anything interesting. Give you peace of mind, do not go there, go for ice cream or coffee. Better to put into practice their own money. I feel ripped off after visiting this place.

  • This place is iconic for being the burial of a true Persian king who lead Iran into glory and expansion. His life was mixed with lots of drama and exciting stories that you can learn about them at this site. If you love history, you are going to like it.
  • The tomb is being repaired but they are still charging 20,000 toman, which is completely insane.
