Pasargadae's most famous monument is the tomb of Cyrus the Great. The monument as a whole measures about 13¾ x 12¼ meters and is about eleven meters high. The lower part is platform, about five meters high, which vaguely reminds one of a ziggurat .

Even Alexander the Great stopped by Darius mausoleum. So, you have to stop at Parsagades. You may be disappointed by the lack of standing monuments. Except the tomb itself, there are almost none. The place has a very special atmosphere. You feel thrown back in...More

This ancient site isn't quite as impressive as Persepolis, but it is nevertheless worth a visit. Spread out over a huge area, the ruins aren't always in the best condition and you may need to use your imagination to fully appreciate the site. The main...More
