Pasargadae is one of the places that stands as a clue for a discoverer who is interested in Achaemenid history, architecture, and art. Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage, Pasargadae is a historical complex that is known as a real heritage of the Achaemenid Empire. It was the first capital of this great dynasty and was founded by Cyrus the Great in the 6th century. It includes several historical sites such as residential palaces and their gardens, the tomb of Cyrus the Great, Tall-e Takht, and the tomb of Cambyses. In the exceptional architecture of this era stands the representations of unity and integration among differences since Achaemenid Empire kings were very respectful towards cultural diversity. It is located at about 130km away from Shiraz, but you can get there quickly by buses or taxis in Karandish and Ali Ibn Hamzeh Terminals.
