Admire the simplicity of the purported tomb of Cyrus the Great at Pasargad, a World Heritage Site containing the ruins of an ancient Persian capital. A six-tiered stone pedestal makes a stairway to the sepulcher of the Achaemenid emperor. Explore remnants of ancient columns in the audience hall of Cyrus' private palace: stone carvings and steles not so dissimilar to those of their arch-rivals in the Acropolis. Built in 559-530 BCE, the complex features a garden of Cyrus' son Darius--the earliest known example of this Persian fourfold design--and the remains of a stone wall dubbed the "Prison of Solomon." Hire a guide to get the most out of this 1.6 sq km (0.6 sq mi) site. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Pasargad holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pasargad and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Here lies the greatest leader the world has ever seen. In around 530 b.c. he controlled a fourth of the world's population, and provided them with the the world's first civil rights. Freedom of religion was the law, and slavery was outlawed. All hail the only king revered by even his enemies as being a great king. We love you oh great king Cyrus, King of four corners, king of the Aryans. King of kings
very beautiful and nice
great place too visit
Although not much to see anymore it's worth to como here for the great history behind
Amazing place of pilgrimage. As great and powerful as he was, he chose to have a small burial. The light of Aryans and humanity.
