What to see in Iran

Pasargada

About 100 km northeast of Shiraz is the first capital of the Achaemenid Persian Empire. In its gigantic archaeological site is the Tomb Cyrus II the Great, founder of this Empire in the 6th century BC, and built on a funerary platform on which the funeral chamber itself rests; the tomb of his son and successor Cambises. You can also find the Toll-e Takht Fortress located on top of a hill formed by an entrance porch, a courtroom, remnants of royal palaces and gardens.

When Alexander the Great conquered Persia, he visited this city led by admiration and respect for the king and ordered its restoration.
