King Cyrus the Great's tomb at Pasargadae
Pasargadae, the capital of Cyrus the Great (559-530 BC) in ancient Persia, is today an archaeological site and one of Iran's ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Cyrus the Great (c. 600 BC or 576 BC – December 530 BC), was the first Zoroastrian Persian emperor and the founder of the Persian Empire under the Achaemenid dynasty.
Under his rule, the Persian empire expanded enormously, to eventually include most of Southwest Asia and much of Central Asia, from Egypt and the Hellespont in the west to the Indus River in the east. It was the largest empire the world had seen up to that time.
